On a recent ascent to High Street from Haweswater, several chaffinches seemed quite used to people in the car park. I liked the stone wall perch and the background created by the blue of Haweswater reservoir.

Thanks for looking

Thanks ayliffe. It was the effect I was after with the dof, but not sure if this is the covention with bird photography or not? I just know it can look pretty good in portriature and so applied it here.

The Chaffinches are quite tame in that car park, I just wish the Golden Eagle there could give us such a photo op.
