This little bird was brooded, hatched and raised in our gardens. Its body is about as big as my thumb. 😉

Canon 7DmkII, 300mm F/4 prime, 1.4x extender.

Not much editing needed. Auto adjusted white levels, then used ColorMancer white balance/highlight recovery plugin.  Then Viveza v1 to brighten up the bird.

He is so gorgeous Sandra.  I love this. A very good shot and I love that BG as well.  As big as your thumb is extremely tiny and I wonder how they survive sometimes. [smile] Robyn

They survive because I make sure that people cutting down nectar bearing trees nearby don't impact on them, and that the parent birds are very dilligent. 

I love photographing the next generation of birds in our gardens.  😉

  Ah, you are so diligent yourself with the caring that you dish out towards them all Sandra. There is much to be admired there.  Following the next generation is so interesting and how you keep track of them all I don't know.  I guess you began as a novice and have now become a pro'. [smile]
