What charming photos, it looks dumpy and perhaps a bit grumpy!

I watched him for 20 minutes or more as he carefully went over a section of the Oak tree stripping off all the Aphids and other insects he could find.

I'm only just getting into birds and have bought a Canon SX 30 with a huge zoom, but now realise I need a tripod or monopod to hold it steady, plants seem so much easier, but well done, lovely pictures.

flowers are easier not only because they stay still but also if you don't get a satisfactory shot you can always return and there they still are.
I took these on a Canon compact Power Shot SX200IS 12x optical and to 40x digital, I was at the max and was able to frame and hold the shots just long enough to click the shutter. I have thought about getting a tri or mono pod but dont really want to be hampered with equipment, I think it will be my next step though. The compact only weighs 250gms I wouldn't want to try this with an SLR especially with a heavy lens on the front.
Just found out the Canon SX30 has x 40 optical ~ I wish.
