    these were the best of the series but imo they didn't turn out quite so well:

    1. yeah i know this one's centered and does not really utilize the rule of thirds, but c'mon, give me a break, it's hard to get a good composition while he's flying away :(

    2. this one has a lot of lost detail due to cropping

    It is sooo difficult to capture these little things. If you're interested, you might enjoy my little "Bird Saga" here on TPF in 4 parts from back in 2007?
    Part_1
    Part_2
    Part_3
    Part_4

    And then there was this friendly little chaffinch who became quite tame in May of 2008:

    You might enjoy those. Maybe.

    Songbirds are really tough to capture well without long glass. Pro bird photographers often use things like the Canon 500 f/4 or 600 f/4 WITH 1.4 or 2X Teleconverters.

    That said, these are a good attempt. Unfortunately, they are still lost in your frame. If you want to go for songbirds, I would also recommend some sort of blind near a feeder.

    make sure you use the center focus on the af system to get the birds in focus. also crop if you haven't yet
