[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
We had some very strong winds come through early in April - one of "my" wrens seemed to be a little bit wind-blown by it all! It looks like I need to start using manual focus and focus a little behind the head to properly use the DOF in front and behind when I'm able to stop down to something like f/10.

See my other wren for details about this species:

Cool bird, Allan! You can call this shot like "Bad feather day :)"
Only suggestion to you is to make vertical crop and avoid central position to get better composition IMHO.

Hi Alan,
Great capture...The expression and ruffled feathers are priceless. A Wren with an attitude....:-)

On le voit bien agrippé pour ne pas partir au vent, cette photo est magnifique avec le vent qui soulève tout son plumage.
