Good to see you posting again.
A good capture of this Whitethroat getting at the spiders eggs.
This isn't a bird I'm familiar with.
It looks quite large for the warbler family but I do see the similarity.
I wondered if taking the blue down a touch might enhance the shot,although the white breast would possibly lose some of its whiteness in doing so.
Good post though with a very good note.

Good to see you posting again. Great shot on this White Throat getting himself some spider eggs. The colors and detail look good. I found that a mono pod was a good tool. I have IS in my 70-200 lens, but bought a mono pod before my trip to Florida. Much faster and easier to use, and doubles as a walking stick. It sent my keeper rate much higher.

Well taken. The bird's visual clears its activity.Thanks for your discussion note.

Unusual and well-timed shot of a Whitethroat struggling with a spider's nest. Excellent depth of focus, sharp details and nice natural colours. Amazing how it is holding on to the vertical trunk! Brilliant capture!
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Hi Robert, you captured a nice brief moment with this shot. Focus is razor sharp with detail on eye outstanding. Your exposure is excellent. I like the rich brown colors and unusual pose of bird. Good DOF.

Nice shot of this Whitethroat. I like the sharpness, natural colours, composition and BG.
Excellent DOF and POV.

Nice sharp action shot. Focus is spot on the eye and BG. The VR has worked wonderfully or you have very steady hands :)
TFS regards, Anil

I ignored your thumbnail yesterday. Today it was next to those I hadn't seen yet. My curiosity was triggered by this strange thing in front of the bill. I'm glad I clicked it open. Fantastic action shot. Rare one. (Easy to attract birds eating seeds but not possible for those eating from spider nests).
The eye is so sharp.
Noticable no-trilling performance with handheld tele in late afternoon.

Nice pose, DOF and POV Rob, colours are good, exposure is spot on, the spiders nest adds interest.
Usually when you first start using RAW things get worse before they get better, but stick at it and persevere, things will get easier.
