I have a couple of new lenses, they can only be used on manual mode so it's a bit of a struggle at the moment but it's definitely kicked my behind into getting off auto mode. Saying that though the first picture is with my original lens and in auto mode lol

This next one is on manual, it's a Nikon series E 75-150mm zoom.

The robin photo has been cropped, the original has about 4 times more tree in it.

Trying out new lenses / cameras always comes with a learning curve - but it gets easier after a while
Not sure what #1 is about - is it a flash shot too? and #2 - well you are finding out that cropping can only go so far and your next step is the 100-400 or something like that :D

I think the 1st shot is a fungus of some sort but don't ask me.
The second has got you in a spot of bother.
I don't read settings that people use.
I would have a go at a few set up shots at home.
All you have to do is get some food cans or bottle and move back.
Take a few shots and see if you can read what is written there.
Could save a lot of extra work once out and about, its worth a try.

Thank you both :)
I think the fungus is called Artists bracket, it was huge. Yes the flash was used.
I am bidding on a lens on eBay atm but have a back-up bookmarked if I don't win it though, it's a 70-300mm.
One of my work colleagues gave me some flowers last week so they will make a great focus for some home shots :)
