@Tor. yes, birds have lungs, they're just highly adapted for flight. Their respiratory system includes lungs and air sacs to store air temporarily, providing a continuous supply of oxygen for flight. The air sacs also connect to a bird's hollowed-out bones.

Spectacular! I love the seeds or berries that he (she?) is perched on.

Herb, this is a spectacular image. How you can get this kind of clarity (particularly on a moving beak) is amazing to me. Very nice.

Was he singing " Oh what a Beautiful Morning..." beacause that was my first thought Herb. Wonderful moment in time image.

Was he singing " Oh what a Beautiful Morning..." because that was my first thought Herb. Wonderful moment in time image.

Others already mentioned what I like about this picture, the fact that you caught him singing for you. You just made that little guy a star :)
Tor14-Mar-2005 20:33
This is very nice. He certainly is singing his lungs(?) out!

Herbert this is a fantastic shot,
bet he sang as pretty as he looks.

Great detail, very close for a small bird.

Singing its heart out. It must be spring. Beautiful capture. I like the white background.

Ding! Ding! Ding! Another winner!

I'm with Ric and Tom, Herb. You ought to be commissioned by Canon for the long lenses you sell. It is a satisfied song we're hearing.
