Great image Ed. The contrasting soft background and its colour works well with the super sharp detail of the chaffinch.

Good shot, Ed, the detail is excellent, as is the colour rendition.
Shame about the harsh light on its right leg / foot - but that's wiuldlife photography for you..!
Hope you have been keeping well and out of mischief while I've been away?!
