Male Chaffinch

By teocali
This male chaffinch was perched about 30ft up in the old oak tree next to our house. Not as sharp as I would have liked, but had to point and shoot as he was gone in a trice. Handheld, F10, 1/80sec, ISO 100, [email protected] V3 happened to catch my eye as it was the moon just becoming visible after the chaffinch had disappeared!

Thank you all for looking at my Squirrel upload and for your c&c's - as always so much appreciated Smile

Good shots - I had a problem with shadows on the birds as well but we can't have the sun and no shadows. That moon is lovely, well captured Ina
