Lillian this is absolutely first rate. Wonderful head and eye, good pose, and lots of crisp detail in the plumage. Grin Perhaps you may have done something about the dark line that runs right across his back in the BG but hey - this is a shot of the bird and that is first rate.

WOW! an award for this Chaffinch and from you Ron that is indeed an honour, a man who's bird images are so perfect..thank you so much.
And also thank you everyone, as without all your help and comments I surely would not have progressed so far with my photography.
But must say that since using my new Tripod and head (both sugested by Geoff (featherfriend) ) I have gained so much more confidence and am deleting soooo many images that know are c**p!Wink that is a good feeling.
