Couple birds from Florida...
Thanks.
Great Capture, nice detail... I've lived here in Florida a long, long time.  I've never seen one with those markings!  Very cool!

i have just started with bird photography in my backyard.

i don´t have the reach that some here have (so i have to crop a lot) and i have a lot to learn about bird photography.

the birds here are not that colorfull as in other regions of the world .... but it´s fun.
Lovely pictures. Could you share your shooting parameters and lens used?

i have just started with bird photography in my backyard two days ago.

i don´t have the reach that some here have (so i have to crop a lot) and i have a lot to learn about bird photography.

the birds here are not that colorfull as in other regions of the world .... but it´s fun.










Awesome images in this series, Malte!  Congrats, they are really beautiful!  What bird is this?  The woodpecker I know, but I'm not familar with this other bird.  Looks like a cross between some sort of Titmouse and a Warbler and a Blue Jay!  So pretty!  Love the line down the breast too, great images!

i have searched the english name:

wiki:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blue_Tit

the blue tit is as numerous as sparrows here in germany.  ;)
and they are the first at the feeding station.. 10-20 seconds after they visit the feeding station the sparrows arrive.

when they fly away they are the first to come back short after them the sparrows... the bue tit is a cheeky little bird.
that´s what i learned the past 2 days.

hell im really a bird noob, i have so much to learn about their behavior. :)
