Quick grab shot whilst trying to get a Nuthatch.

Out the corner of my eye saw this Finch perched on cut down scrub avoiding the snow.

Hope you like, comments and crits always welcome.

Thanks Jonah,

It was at the same hide as the others just to the left of the tree stump!

nice shot of the chaffy but he is really looking out of the picture and needs to be more placed to the left so that he is looking IN - I viewed large and I would guess this was a heavy crop as its not as sharp as I would like personally speaking and the b/g is rather noisy but as a grab shot I know the temptation and the difficulties you were possibly faced with - did you get the nuthatch?

You are right re the positioning, but this is as it was from the camera ie shot to the right of the frame as I said a grab shot and a crop to achieve the correct framing looked too overpowering, so I left it as is... ISO was high as light was almost gone hence the grain & shutter speed dropped as shooting towards shrubbery & it was monopod mounted so may account for the softness, or I just shot it bad!
Yes I did get the Nutty...Thanks for comments, Steve
