Re: Evening chorus

Shot with your usual precision, Hugh. In spite of the obstructions I like #2 best for its singing.

A lovely trio, Huw. Obstructions don't bother me, as it makes an image look far more natural. thank you for sharing.

Re: Evening chorus

Wonderfully clear shots, Huw. Robins are a delight to photograph as they are happy to give a variety of poses in one sitting! Well done.
