Welcome to TN! This is a great way to start of your TN experience. I keep repeating myself but this is an awesome community. It has some great photographers sharing their pictures and knowledge here with us so there is always lots of room for learning new tricks. Be careful though, it gets addictive! This is a superb first post. I'll be looking for more of your work.

Great first post. I usually don't like to chop off the bird's wings or tail. But for some reasons, this one really worked. I love it. Great POV. The only thing that I would do to make this photo better is NOTHING! It's brilliant captured!

Awesome shot Jeff,
Looks like your getting started on the right track here at TN.
Excellent sharpness and detail with wonderful colours. Love the tiny yellow speckles on the throat area. Very good job of stopping the wings in motion for a really nice effect.

Using your flash really set your little bird off nicely against the black background and gave you a nice catch light in the eye too.
Great first posting. Welcome to TN.
