Hi all, this is a variant from an earlier upload, suggestions taken on board and a very small amount of blue filter applied to the BG only to take away what was a very dull grey sky. Still not much action going on here on the bird front hence delving into the archives again.
Many thanks to those of you that took time out to view and vote on my Bullfinch and a special thank you to PattiW for the UA, very much appreciated,
Regards,
Geoff.

This is a beauty of a shot. Really like the muted colours of the bird, and that red rimmed eye. Soft buttery bokeh, superb feather detail.

Not only did you find a very seldom bird (at least here it is very seldom seen) but also you managed a fantastic capture. Detail in the feathers is striking!
