stunning capture! I love the action shot - especially! So awesome! I finally have some birds coming to my feeeders, but they are extremely skiddish. I wished I could get any shots of them, but as soon as they see some movement inside the house, they fly away.

@Marion: Thank you Marion. Give your birds some time.... They will get used to the surroundings in no time.

Magda, I keep forgetting to ask you if you got a new lens that you have not listed yet. Also, what were your settings for these shots? :)

2 Mar 2009 12:29pm

@Marion: I wish! hehehe the lens I want is 70-200 mm but can't afford it. ;) I got the 50 mm 1.8 a while ago but these photographs were taken with my "all purpose" 18-200 mm.

OK - that's just plain the coolest thing EVER!!!! Your girls must really have something special - even the birds can't resist them!

@willow: Thank you Willow! We are lucky to live where we are now - lots of nature trails where people basically train the birds to eat off of a hand. :)

hi magda,
very nice shots..i prefer the right one for the composition and it is more dynamic and more original

@aubry: Thank you Marc.

Elora from Genoa, Italy

How wonderful magda! How did you manage to entice the bird to fly right into the hand?? Incredible!

2 Mar 2009 6:36pm

@Elora: Thank you! Lots of nature trails around where we live where people train the birds to eat off of a hand.

Your bird shots amaze me Magda - they are so awesome

11 Mar 2009 6:14am

@Mandy Provan: Thank you Mandy! I have hundreds of shots like these.... We are lucky to live where we are. And I am lucky that my girls are not scared to feed the birds and that they have so much love for the animals that they want to go back to the trails again and again....
