a nice way to start a day

a pair of goldcrests appeared this morning on our wisteria (which is about to bloom). These are the smallest of our native birds but they are surprisingly unafraid of people. They were extremely active looking for insects.

They are said to have a perpetually surprised look on their face. They may be nesting in a cedar nearby. I hope so because they are great fun to watch.

What filter did you use for this pic, it's fantastic!

no filter, just morning light and a telephoto lens used very close to the birds because they couldn't see me through the glass in our porch
