Who doesn't appreciate the Black-capped chickadee!

Very nice Stu, one of your best I think. You retained the details in the whites, great exposure, and sharp. Great work!

I honestly think this is the best chickadee photo I have ever seen!! Everything is perfect, the background, the light, the composition. Great job!

Thank you both! Dan, IYO, do you feel such sharpness comes from the capabilities of the 50D? I could never seem to get really sharp imagery with the 10D. I like the 10, it was a great camera to learn with, but I don't think there's any doubt about the 50D and its ability.

First off I would give much of the credit to the photographer. Good equipment certainly can make your job easier but you still have to make the correct decisions and snap the photo.

The 50D is no doubt helping your cause, more pixels to work with ALO capabilities and honestly some lens/camera combinations work well together. Keep in mind you also have micro focus adjustments available to you as well should you feel you need it.

So yes, equipment helps but I think more credit goes toward the one taking the photo, especially in this case. smile

That is a great image Stu! I agree with Dan that it is one of if not your best that I've seen. Everything about it says wallhanger!

Very nice Stu! Exposure tack on, which isn't easy on chickadee cheeks in sunlight! Good color as well!

What a pose, you caught him or her warming up one foot. The whites are great. I like the 80/20 rule and 80% of that image was the photographer!

In the good old days the camera was the box that held the film. Today the camera is the film.

    • The US gets Assange this way. Not difficult to understand.
    • It has a slight liberal bias: all major news media lies between the political ideology of a typical Democrat and a typical Republican. No outlet is going to intentionally dissuade 30% of the market, it's just bad business. With regards to Trump though, he has made an enemy of the press. It has little to do with his political affiliation and everything to do with his confrontational attitude. See this "come at me bro" of a statement from the Press Corps. Note they welcome Trump to sue them for the so called "fake news", probably because they are confident in the accuracy of their articles. Also realize that it is entirely possible for something to be accurate and biased: which is probably all you will see in Trump coverage from here until the end of his Presidency    
    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
    • Because you are banking on not having to pay it back in your lifetime and are perfectly fine with passing that debt down to future generations which allows you to live a better lifestyle at their expense.  Some of us don't think it'e ethical to pass debt onto generations who will have no say in the process.
