Thanks a lot Gerry,it took some doing lol, I spent about 4 or 5 hrs in my hide with the camera on the tripod and had a small hole to look through to wait for something to land on the perch in the right position ,the slightest movement and they are off, don't they realize it's me that feeds them lol , alls I ask is they sit nice for me lol watching paint drying lol , too hot to sit today.

Thanks a lot everyone !!!

Nice one Jean. The background colour really compliments the finch's plumage and the composition works very well with nothing to clutter the view of the bird. Like it.
