Another Chickadee photo from my backyard feeder. The bird is actually posing on the hanger that holds the feeder. I noticed some ghosting around the bird from the flash. Any tips on avoiding or controlling this?

Nice shot John - I like the ghosting effect. I think it's that even at 1/250 there is still movement captured of the wings and beak. The flash will freeze the scene for a moment but the rest of the movement is captured. Bit like a slow synch shot seems to be the effect you've got here!! I like it though..
