    Set-up of feeders and two tables with attached perches to tempt the little blighters into lens range.

    hanging and feeders from a birch at the back of my garage,

    Standing below does not stop the Great Tit - camera is usually mounted on a tripod seen in the open window.

    Not used to having me and camera aimed from the reverse direction!

    Hunger always wins!

    You can see how close the feeders are to the window - even the Long tailed Tit ignored me.

    The blue tit stayed above thinking it was hidden!

    This is the view from the window - and robin - with 70mm set
    - showing how fortunate I am in having plenty of cover in the garden with fields hedgerows and water behind all within 100 yards.
    The pics outside all taken within a few minutes - a regular supply of subjects most days.

    Hey, very cool to see the setup that lets you get so many nice shots of the visiting birds. With so many visitors, you must be kept busy refilling the feeders!

    The robin in the last shot is neat, with him flying right towards the camera.

    yes, the one in flight is really nice :)

    so these images show basically what politicians do with scientists all the time ;)

    just the politicians take the feeders away after the pictures are taken! :(
