    This chaffinch seems to have taken a shine on us (and gets easily annoyed with Mia, the cat, who he feels he has to challenge over and again), he's become quite tame by now, so I could not NOT try to get some photos of him!

    The only thing he hasn't learned as yet is that he has to pose where there actually is LIGHT! He prefers to be where it is dark. Hmph. ;)

    wonderful shot - clear and sharp and with light and to have his beak full as well is an added bonus!

    what is he standing on though?

    Our garden chairs, maybe even the replacement chair for the one that "exploded" at the meet-up when Hertz sat down on it, who knows ;) ;) ;). He was very close to our back door!

    nice one, great color in the background. the caterpillars in his beak are a cool detail as well. brings story to the picture, cause you know he's going to his nest.

    :clap: Beautiful shot! Such nice colour on its chest, nice sharp focus on the eye, and a great addition that it has the squirmy green things in its mouth.

    Wow that is fantastic how close you got. Amazingly sharp, that is really the way to get small bird shots, so close. The background is great too, nicly blurred. I hope you get the chance to get some more shots before the little ones leave the nest and put them up to see.

    Yes, it is great, very clear and the grubs as mentioned are a very nice addition to the photo. I love the dof.
