Not a particularly well lit (against the sun) or sharp shot. And he's a long way off. Saw this guy in our garden about a week ago looking very bloody, today he does look somewhat better. Obviously something got him. But I think he's going to survive.

Cheers

Is that a joke? Obviously not I just googled it. I got another shot this afternoon and it is a growth of some sort.
Last time it was very bloody, now seems to have a crust.
Had another one in the garden a few years ago that had something similar growing out of one eye.
It got very tame when it realized that food could be had very easily. Hung around for at least 8 weeks.
Here's a better shot taken this afternoon:

I had asked a while ago for advice on photographing Chickadees. I got lots of useful advice on setting up blinds, use of long lenses, remote triggers, etc. It turns out that what I needed was a pocket full of sunflower seeds.

Taken with a 60D, 100L macro lens, ISO320....while using the camera one handed :) This is the full picture, no cropping.
The best camera is the one in your hands
