    I was doing some One Colour stuff when I noticed this little fella.
    I managed one quick grab shot with the 45-200 on the G1, before he flew away.

    Nice portrait, to anyone interested this is a young bird still showing the yellow edges to the gape (along the cutting edges of the bill) and some remains of it's fluffy juvenile plumage.

    He's awfully sweet looking even with that disgruntled expression.:biggrin: Good for you - an impressive closeup!

    He looks very much like the birds we here in the states call Chickadees.

    Exactly the same family BBW, of the genus Paridae.
