Thanks for the votes and comments on Female Chaffinch. Today we have the male.
V2 is specially for Simon as it's a lunch shot Smile
V3 is shows the disease that finches are prone to, with unsightly growths on their legs. Apparently it has little effect on their day to day activities.

Such a beautiful bird, love your shallow dof, the colours and perch are so attractive as well. Julia also showed us a bird with diseased feet today, poor things....great photography

Great set - can't choose a favourite as I like them all for different reasons. V1 great portrait. V2 great inflight. V3 great reportage. Nicely done!

Thank you.
I forgot to mention that the bright specks on the bird are droplets of rain.

Absolutely Splendid images, Keith. As Alex says, they all have their distinct merits - V2 is Great, not just because it's Lunch ( Grin ) but the in-flight capture is so difficult to achieve. Beautiful images, every single one - and the presentation, with the black background, is just perfect Wink
Delighted to make it '30' for you.
"Superb"

Simon

Well captured trio, sad to see his bumble foot, hope he survives. Carol
