My guess is that your unidentified is a juvenile greenfinch.

European Goldfinch (Carduelis carduelis) in Swedish called Steglits.

Edit, dang it was the other bird that was unidentified =)

I think you could be right, it looks like it was recently enjoying a bath, i'd rather say I didn't know what it was than get it wrong!

Here's some more at the same feeder.

With fairly low light I ran into this incredible amount of little ducks.
Taken with beercan at 800 iso




and when they swim away



got them before the heron, the rats or sheer drowning got them, I'm afraid

one mother can not guide this amount of ducks
Be yourself; everyone else is already taken

Some of the first shots with my new Sigma 50-500
Tern (with guano deposited while taking the photo) I cloned out the guano on a second photo as I thought it took the eye away from the subject.

I never noticed the "ringlet" collar on the tui before taking these photos

This one had everything stacked against it as far as image quality went - bad light, ISO 1600 and beercan with 2x TC at 420mm. I'm still glad I got the shot. I gotta get me some fast glass, though!!!

P.S. Can anyone recommend some noise reduction freeware?

Geardown, this is a nice freebie - works better than the NR supplied with PSProX.......

Neat Image

Noiseware community edition is a free standalone program. It only saves to jpg but seems to do a better job for me than some of the other programs I've tried. You can find it at the bottom of Tis Page

Choppy sea, changing light, 200HS with old 2x T/C, meaning MF and fairly slow shutter - I'm rather pleased (and surprised) with the result

I was out working in the yard today and my dogs started barking at something, I looked up on the fence about 15 feet away and Mr. Roadrunner was looking back. All shot with my Minolta 100 - 400mm APO.

Two birds from the weekend, the Peacock I have posted elsewhere but the Seagull is new and I love - the eye is pin sharp, very excited (and the beak is almost all in sharp focus, well better than the Peacock anyway!)
