Firstly a big thank you all for your ongoing comment and critique. It is truly inspirational and really does make mewant to go out and take more pictures. Grin

Today's contribution to the digital melting pot is a greenfinch. There are some compositional difficulties here with the rather disproportionate perch. That's the trouble with wildlife. It doesn't always do what you want it to. I am however prepared, on this occassion, to don my tin hat and endure any negative comment far as too few of these little chaps come close enough for me to photograph them at all! Smile

I hope you enjoy the rest of your day, whatever you are doing.

A rather beautiful observational study Gerry, in which you have captured all the charm, colour and character of this rather handsome Greenfinch so very well.

Regards Nathan

there is nothing wrong with your perch, it is perfectly natural and very much greenfinch camo colour Smile
Great shot for sure.
