When I'm shooting I am always looking for a balance between subject and setting and in this case I got very lucky on a couple of fronts. First, the bird was in a nice location with usually ample light so I didn't have to shoot at too low a speed or have the ISO too high. Had it moved back 10 feet, no shots would have been possible. Second, this was the best thrush ever. It moved around on the ground or in low bushes for about 10 minutes and was often as close as two metres. We couldn't believe our luck. I had so many great shots (a tribute to the bird not the photographer) that I had a hard time picking which one to post

I was trying for a few weeks to get a thrush I could work with. This one exceeded my expectations.
