Red King

By beavis  
Ive titled this shot "Red King" as the Chaffinch in Irish is called "Rí Rua" or Red King....Just bought a new book The complete guide to Ireland's Birds which is the only reason I know that... Anyway hope you like the shot, it was raining heavy at the time but this chaffinch was stuffing his little face with peanuts before any greenfinches came along.

Shot was taken in RAW, converted and sharpened and colours adjusted in PSP and border added.

Thanks for looking...

Great capture, I find the colours a little over saturated, the green of the background is a little distracting, nice work

Nice colours , well caught Keith. Have you tried a square crop to cut out the feeder? I think it could look very well!
