Hi Pat!

Amazing details in your shot, wish I could capture like this... I can't get close enough with my 300mm lens. Colors and composition are very nice too. TFS

Gorgeous in every detail. A beauty of a composition! Kudos! Cheers, Klaus

I am impressed..there is a difference. Others had been talking down the 300 on Nikon groups...I think they were plants trying to get folks to spend 2000 extra for the D3..HA! This is all you need right here both in quality and in colours!

Hi Pat

Congratulations on your new camera! I trust it will bring you a lot of joy and many terrific images!
This is a very nice first capture, with an excellent close-up of this blue tit.
The details are good and the colors are very beautiful and vivid.
Exceptional uniform BG and wonderful composition, too, but i too feel that that halo around the bird is a bit strange.
Even so, this is a great start for you and i compliment you for it!

Bravo and TFS

Coucou Pat,voila une superbe première avec ton nouveau jouet,ça promet une belle suite,bravo.
