Strange (for me of course!) little bird, who hunted some insect for its new born. But as I was around keen to take its picture, she was just flying from this tree to that one to make sure I am gone. Very difficult to capture object in a deem cloudy day. Strong back light for a dark object!

Not the most sharp image! 1/20s @ 600mm EFL....

Does anybody know this fellow?

It's a very good shot considering the arkward shooting conditions. What disturbs a bit it is that tree branch in front.

It is very special for me to to see some pictures from Iran!!!
The bird callís Starlet.
For the rest Iíam agree with Alfred.
Try again to make a good photo, thatís the way.
The ZD 70/300 is a good lens!
I like to see you here again!
Cheers Hans
