If I had this shot on my hard drive it would be in the 'definite' rather than the 'maybe' folder, Geoff.......can't see how you could have any doubts about it.....superb shot, immaculate detail and very natural colours and in a delightful 'pose'.
Very fine bird photography, my friend.

If I was more athletic I would have done a backflip having a shot like this of a male bullfinch - green with envy - a great shot and if this is in your maybe folder then maybe I ought to give up photography Tongue - Ina

I've not ever seen a bullfinch in the wild Geoff. I notice the brighter plumage in v2. Is that closer to what the colour is in real life?
A particularly beautiful image of a beautiful bird.

Hi Anne, V2 is nearer to the true colour but available light seems to give different shades, some seem to be as V1 (which was taken in bright sunlight) but other shot's I have turn out a deeper red, this one is about right I would say but then again I have seen some with even deeper reds, pretty well convinced it's all down to the light because I use the same settings for each,
Regards,
Geoff.

Thanks for the clarification Geoff. Smile I was actually watching a documentary last night about the resurgence of wildlife in the Chernobyl area and a male bullfinch was shown as one of the birds thriving there - yes, the colour there was a deeper shade. Thanks again.
