Augustin Man: That's one of the best BIF image I've ever seen and of a bird that flaps its wings 50 times a second, to boot!
Congratulations,
Augustin

Thank you Augustin, that really is very kind of you.

David

snapa: I didn't know anyone with a DMC-FZ330 could take a picture that good, but you did. Great picture, you deserved the win!

Thank you snapa, that is very kind of you.

In reply to:

Michael Piziak: Wow,
I didn't know they could bend their beaks like that!

Not bent Michael, the female carib's beak is about 20% longer and 30% more curved than the male's. This allows the female to feed from longer, more curved flowers. Their need for nectar is at times greater than the male as they, the females, feed the chicks...the males do not participate in choosing the nest location, building the nest or raising the chicks, in fact they live the lives of avian Casanovas!

BGriffin23: The ultimate "creeper-cam" (as Chris so affectionately dubbed it) done good!

Ah, I have had the camera since launch in the UK in October 2017 and I have yet to look at the DPR review. Time to do so. 😊

In reply to:

mknibbs: Beautiful shot. Nice feather detail. While everyone will laud the lens - it's your patience to get this close that makes it so good. I'm sure you waited ages for the right angle on that icy branch. Makes me want to get out in winter more.

Thank you mknibbs, that is very kind of you. I knew what I was hoping to get and, luckily for me, the pretty little goldfinch obliged.
