It's spring and the wren is singing again. Forunately I don't need my hide to make a picture like this one. These birds are not afraid at all and easy to approach. These tiny birds defend their territory with a lot of "noise". This is one of the smallest birds in Holland. Hope you like it.

Hello Zeno
You have captured this beautiful tiny wren with superb sharp details...They are such a wonderful bird and so hard to capture..Top work.

Wow, Zeno, this is a very good shot!

The image is sharp! The details are good! The colours are natural! The bird is posing nicely! I cannot improve on this!

Kind regards,

Cute shot. Nice composition and sharply focussed.

Wow! This is all the contrary here; our Wrens are very shy and rare. This is an outstanding capture of this superb bird. I like its little tail up. I do love those birds a lot and this is one of the best Wren pictures I have seen. Congratulations!

Great bird image Zeno.
Excellent composition, sharpness and exposure due to wich feather details are clearly and wonderfully visible.
Love the way you've captured the bird in this beautiful natural surrounding.
Also love the color contrast between the feathers of the bird and the greens of the tree and BG very much.
Perfect work. TFS!!!

Hallo Zeno,
Ben ik weer. Je productie is erg hoog. Maar ook van grote kwaliteit. Zeker deze foto. Kleuren en scherpte zijn fantastisch. Een ideale plek om te fotograferen. Maar dan moet hij er maar net gaan zitten. Het levert wel een wonderbaarlijke compositie op.
Nogmaals, Prettige Paasdagen,

Hello Zeno,
Lovely capture of this little Wren in a fine pose! Great focus and fine sharp details. Good light and natural colours too. I like its pose and the soft background. I'm very surprised to hear you say they're not shy at all!! Here they're very shy, like our Robins are too!
TFS and regards, Ulla
