The Watering Hole

By SocksAndStuff
This was top-dog Fieldfare of the garden for a few days, with bolder colouration and a more aggressive presence he ruled the pond and the area around it with a slightly mad stare and uncontrolled persistence. He had many challengers, but most backed off as he charged them relentlessly. At least I'm presuming it's a male?

Well spotted Helen. Unfortunatly the birds head on posture has squashed eye and facial detail. They sometimes simply will not co-operate !!!!! Just my opinion.

All three are very good - your lead conveys the aggression.
Top job.

Versions 2&3 display all the detail and beauty that the bird possesses. Excellent shots Helen.
