    Thanks Dave.
    I applied some sharpening to the bird and a little blur the background. It was a little too rough and too close for f5.6.

    For those interested, I just finished another entry on my Hummingbird Blog. The topic is backgrounds and can be accessed here: http://rwilliamsimaging.com/blog

    I am always interested in feedback so please feel free to comment or critique here or on the blog itself.

    Thanks,
    Bob

    I like this and your most recent Hummer Joel. The bokeh, as always, is creamy smooth and a well detailed bird----but Iam not sure that is what this poor cardinal needs. I can honestly say, I don't think I have ever seen a cardinal molting--do they all look this rough or is this guy special?

    I got a picture like that last year, and thought maybe it was a young one, but then I later read that they get like that from a mite or parisite that they tend to get. Not sure if that is the case or not. Here is one I took very simular (although it goes to show that Joel works hard to control background much better than I do... one of the many reasons his shots are so great) :

    Yep, but it is a great Photo:

    Here is one of my "scruffy" bird shots of a Blackchinned Hummingbird---I call him my battle bird

    This one looks like it might be an illness, the other ones look like they are changing plummage, especially since the beak looks like it is changing from a dark brown to bright orange. I don't really know for sure....is there an ornithologist in the house?

    Some of them really do get "beat up" though the summer....I have some ugly ones too
