    Very well done!
    I like the IQ and the beautiful eye.
    Fun image with all that nesting material.
    I could see a version with the trailing end of the vegetation cloned out.

    Well done Jon...you got close here, another bird which I can't get close to, and when I do its almost always from above, standing on the river bank. Great POV for a Dipper. Nice colours and detail. I would like to see one without anything in the beak. I can see why you went to that SS, the old 7D wasn't very good on the ISO.

    Well done

    I like the image overall. I do feel that Image has some yellow cast. I have not see the bird in the field but quick check online made me feel the same.

    Very nice to see how close you go to this one.

    Who said the old 7d couldn't produce the goods!

    Great to get this close, especially with the nesting material, and even better, down at eye level. I might have opened up the area around the eye a touch, but otherwise a really good shot.

    Owl season is approaching...

    Thanks very much everyone, glad you liked it. Have to admit working with that file after so long as opposed to 5DIV or 1DX was a very different experience!
    Mike I did Dodge the eye and surrounding area.
    Last year I went to the same location and not a dipper to be seen. The two years previous to that they had built a nest under a footbridge but each time the nest fell into the river - despite my pal having put up a supporting shelf for them. I think the continual vibration of people traversing the bridge just causes any mud to come unstuck.

    I love everything about this one and wish only that the nesting material ended in the frame.

    Looks great. Love that load of nesting material. The crop works well too. Details look great.
