[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Caught this long-billed Marsh Wren at a Park early in the morning, when the only sound you hear is this guy! Boy are they loud! Chirping away like they are much larger than they look. Quite confident to have me come near though. I was perhaps 6m away for this shot.

Perfect timing! This is a real one-of-a-kind bird photo.

Hi Chris,
What a great caught! Great timing, excellent composition. I like it very much.

The picture is an excellent capture, but there are two things that I think could improve it. First the bird needs a bit of sharpening. Second, I think you have to much environment in the shot. I have done a workshop to illustrate how you might improve the image. Hope it helps, Chris

Hi Chris, what an amazing image. I love the pose, it's brilliant. Chris's workshop does the right job with sharpness and composition I think, making the most of the great detail you caught in your image. Well done Chris and welcome to TN :)

Hi Chris,
this is beautiful and funny.
Is he practicing ballet?
You had the perfect time for this shot,

Great timing, quite an acrobatic shot. Poses like he is the master of the land.
