This one was taken with the Beercan, on a recent mountain trip, in front of the cabin we stayed at:

Long-tailed tit. Shot with a beercan - these birds are remarkably tame.

@ alve:

your first shot of the heron is an absolute masterpiece. Thanks for sharing that beautiful shot.

I had an incident with a small bird today. It seemed to have fallen out of the nest. But as i learned today, it's not unusual, that young birds are outside the nest, even if they can't fly.
