    I have been getting slightly better at my little bird in bush photography of late, but these guys are too skittish. Was very pleased to get this, although it's at the limits of my 75-300 lens for quality.

    I was hoping for more tits... :(

    Two-ish is usually good for me. I don't like odd-numbers of tits though. That's just strange.

    Nice shot though! Sharpness and exposure seem good!

    Thanks.

    It's shot at 300mm, and then cropped to probably 1/3 of the original. Would have liked to have been closer / crop closer but the birds are too skittish and quality not good enough for more cropping, I reckon. :)

    What a little cutie!! He's making me cold w/ his little feathers a puffed up.

    Tyler.....I don't like tits w/ a lot of space between them.

    Yeah, it was a little chilly for tits to be out. :)

    Oh, I don't know...;)

    Me neither, I much prefer tits that are closer together. Even supported in kind of a fabric nest, if you will. They just seem to be more visually pleasing when they're together in harmony...
