It was the 18-70mm kit lens I'd just finished unpacking the camera and lens when this little fella turn up to see what was going on.

This is a blackbird who been a visitor to our garden for the last 4-5 years

Thanks. Like I said, good shot, sans washline. Especially right out of the box.

We have a version of the blackbird here called the cow bird. I'll try and get a shot of one. They frequent the area where I live due to the small dairies and horse farms, but they are kind of "skitish" around people.
