A Male Chaffinch (Fringilla coelebs) perching nicely for me in the garden the other day - they usually scrabble around on the ground!

Many thanks for your support of yesterdays upload and a big THANK YOU to Ron (Maiwand) for his User Award. All very much appreciated and valued Smile

Lovely shot of this wee bird, Sylvia, with what I'd describe as a self-satisfied appearance and 'pose'.
Excellent detail, colouring and light in the eye.
Ronnie.

What a proud and haughty pose from this handsome **** chaffinch Sylvia, I think he's enoying the attention you are paying him and he's playing up to the camera!Grin
