Female Bullfinch

By Gezina  
Thank you so much for your kind support on the Male Bullfinch, much appreciated.
Now I was quite happy to have taken some shots of the Male but on the way back to the visitor centre the I startled the female and she flew around me only to perch on this weed, I was on my knees ( I know there are more things than praying that gets me on my knees Grin) inching my way forward, by then the light was poor and for once I will upload Exif data, but I was really pleased to land a few shots of a female as well - Ina

Nice one Ina, the Female seems less bothered about having her picture taken than the male.

Came out really well Ina considering the bad light, if you stretched your hand out I'm sure she would have let you stroke her. Have never known a bird let you get so close as that one did.
