A brilliant capture Sylvia, I love the alert over the shoulder pose. For once a greenfinch that doesn't look like it is about to pick a fight with another bird!

It's not easy to capture such fine detail on the Greenfinch that you have here Sylvia and this is about as good as I've seen, the beak and eye is spot on, superb,

Fine capture here Sylvia, hope you've been getting that Moth box out missus, lots about at the moment. Keep an eye out for tomorrow's post from me, which should be of interest to you......

Bestest regards.....Ade
