    So there was this blackbird sitting in the quince tree in front of my study window making a total racket. Must have been because our cat was sitting in that same window and this young father (?) was protecting its young? Whatever... I tried to get photos of it from inside the window (since opening it would have made him fly away!), fully extended 300mm lens, hand-held, grey weather - blooper. Too bad.

    I tried to "rescue" it by means of creating this collage, but - see for yourselves. They are all bloopery beyond repair. I'm too bad a photographer, after all. (Others get bird portraits that are sooo sharp you can see the landscape around them reflected in their eyes, but me? Hmph :confused: )

    This was the cropped version of one, the sharpest, of the scanned photos

    and this the way I scanned it

    while in the original frame (print) there are even more leaves and even less bird to be seen. Harrumph - real bloopers :grumpy:

    The pros have nice expensive lenses which lets in loads of light, sometimes they'll slap on a teleconverter or two and they'll use a tripod. So don't be so hard on yourself.
