30/10/2012 ~ Blackbird
I spent 20 minutes  sat outside in the cold waiting for the local blue tits to make an appearance or even the sparrow hawk that occasionally passes through but the only bird that stopped within reach  was this blackbird ... so blackbird it is!
 Yes I am aware how laughable 20 minutes is in the pursuit of wildlife photographs but I had a lunch date with a 4 year old ... scupper that at your peril!!!
 And that was a considerable reach as well: 500mm + 2x teleconverter + crop sensor = 1500mm in 35mm terms.
Please feel free to provide constructive critique on the technical aspects of this photograph.
