I went outside to shoot this picture and it got a little high key in the tone but I like the fact that the eye is sharp and defined which is not easy considering his head is jet black! I rarely convert to black and white with my bird pictures but made an exception here.

Best View in Light Box! Thank you!!!

    Thank you for your kind words...Luck was with me that it stayed still long enough for me to shoot this picture, especially when it could see me with the camera outside near the feeder These little guys are super fast and are all over the place flying back and forth. However the fact that I was outside and not shooting through the window as I often do might account for the advantage of getting more detail...
