Lovely set.
Wish that Gold finch with her beautiful bikini chest was sharper. Guess you noise reduction software removed all the chest detail where not removed the noise from top BG area.

Thanks jodelak, its a shame its a feeding station but they are quite shy birds and hard to approach in natural surroundings.


regards brian.

A very colourful bunch, Brian, but my personal fave is your first image, the Chaffinch. It is in a perfect pose and the setting is beautiful!

Thanks Ian, because its common it does tend to be overlooked, but its a smart looking bird.

Cheers for your comment.
