Wren ( Troglodytes troglodytes )

The Wren is a tiny plump finely-barred Bird with a surprisingly loud voice.
The Wren has a habit of raising its very short tail vertically.
It alos has a distinctive flight which is fast and direct, often plunging straight into dense cover.
Wren populations decline in cold winters but usually recover quite quickly.
They nest in small loose ball of leaves and grass in bank.
They have 5-6 eggs, 2 broods, in April-July.
They have a pale stripe over the eye, brown colour barred wings, strong legs and feet and a very slightly downcurved fine bill, they also have a short rounded tail.
For food it forages on Insects and Spiders in low thick cover under hedges, in ditches and other dark damp places.
The Wren is similar in species to the Dunnock and the Robin.

Hello Nick,
A superb capture of a Wren: it is not easy to take them without a dense busy BG, but here you not only have nice sharpness, a great pose, a fine POV, but a pleasing OOF contrasting green BG in a fine composition on the tree stump.
Thanks and have a good week,

Ciao Nicholas. Interesting dynamic capture whit bright natural colour and good light. Great shot.


Hello Nicholas,

Hello Nick,
Excellent capture of this tiny wren, often not easy to take. The light green background is perfect! Best regards,

I've said this in the past, and I repeat it, my saying or commenting on your shots, my most respected friend Nick, would be tantamount to showing the sun light by a candle, as we say here.
Thanks for sharing your shots here.
I honestly feel people like you, Howard, Gert Ellstrom, Silvio, Claudine, Paul Haynes, Ivan and a few others are beyond these critiques, 'coz for us, it's always a pleasure when we look at your work that shows us your passion for it!
A salute to you, and all the greats!
