Taken on a dark November day. This lovely Bullfinch hung around for ages stuffing his face so managed to get one reasonable one from the many. Light was bad so ISO makes it a bit noisy. Had to up the exposure when I got it on to the computer.

That's super Jean. A mouth covered in food. I have noticed that two or three of your images are a little bit soft. Do you always use a tri pod.

I used a monopod. Not able to set the tripod up in a small space and must admit to not using it very often. Was peering out of a window that didn't open too well, couldn't use a faster shutter speed due to the light - would that have helped? Must admit to being a bit of an oportunist and have managed a few pictures of the thrush and this bullfinch as the tree is adjacent to my house, sadly on the north side in shade. Excuses Excuses. Thanks for commenting.
