Mr and Mrs Bullfinch

By FeatherFriend
In view of the comments that were made on my last upload, I have decided to take the very sound advise I received from the majority of members, and upload a version of Mr and Mrs Bullfinch without the caption's. I did take a short burst of shots and after looking at them again, this doesn't seem quite as 'noisy' as the last one. (here I go again, looking for perfection, but can't help it , its the way I am, sorry). May I thank you once again for your comments/advice, much appreciated, and after all I am here to learn.
Geoff. Have a good weekend.

Glad you've posted this straight shot. It's a cracker, and especially appealing because both birds are so clearly in focus and given similar emphasis. You could have posted yesterday's as a fun version of this.

Shot in a hundred Geoff. Both male and female, both nicely in focus, beautiful colour and making a good composition. Terrific.

A stunning capture of a pair of beautiful birds. Noise pah!! Too much fuss is made about noise and megapixel count, Geoff.

Great shot Geoff; lovely colours and wonderful to capture them both together. I liked the fun version from yesterday too, but agree that the slight lack of sharpness is a minor factor here and am glad you uploaded this version too
