A lovely shot but what is the strange blurred object on the right of the photo. (Looks like it is about to hit the poor bird )Some careful use of cloning here would improve the shot and maybe a tighter crop. There is a nice use of depth of field to blur the background and again nice colours.

I think the portrait format was a good option here.
I feel a bit of fill in flash would have worked well in this instance.

100% a chaffinch

I agree about cloning the disturbing blur on the right hand side.

Do you know what it is?

As already mentioned it's a male Chaffinch. Yes the blob needs to go but it's still a beautiful image. Well done. click!!

Nice shot although i do agree the air gun pellet has to go. I think it would also benifit from a tighter crop.

Thanks for all the comments. I didn't expect this much interest in this pic.

Tony & others I agree a tighter crop & removing the blurry branch. I think your mod shows the issue here though. Due to original crop, the big pic is nearly 100%.
