Hi all, a full frame shot of a Chaffinch and I nearly didn't get all of him in the frame....he came so close, BG is natural, no PS on this one Wink
Many thanks for taking time out to view and comment on my LTT and a special thank you to Glyn, Ronnie and Adrian for the UA's, I really do appreciate and value the support,
Regards,
Geoff.

Without doubt the finest and well detailed portrait of a Chaffinch I have seen, it's perfect IMHO !! So fine and clear, that one can see the claw nearest the lens is missing......Awesome image Geoff Wink My UA for today is taken already, but now so is tomorrow's.

Chaffinches are wonderful little birds, I think we take them for granted but having watched them for a long time they have character in abundance...........I love em......very nice capture of the male.......WinkWinkWinkWink
