I was pleased with this one because the Bullfinch is one of my favourite birds and I have never managed to photograph one before.

Thanks for looking
Jason

A superb image of the bullfinch - haven't seen one of these up close.
I wonder what settings philhomer would have used?
So far a I can see details are clear, colours look great, catchlight is there, b/g is perfect!
Well done.
