Christian, nicely and artfully done. I see lots of feather detail which is something I always look for in bird images (and often find woefully missing). I like in particular the absence of irrelevant, distracting background.

What is the brownish looking bird? It looks a bit like our wren - we don't have any of these birds in the UK.

Could these shots be improved by a little heightening of contrast?


Thank you David,

I live in Virginia, and the brownish looking bird is a Carolina Wren.  In looking at the shots, I agree that a bit contrast might help - I will try that.

All the Best!
