[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Shot this Greenfinch under the Pear Tree where it apparently picked the nut particles fallen from the feeder in the tree. You can see the particles in the beak.
The image is a too big crop. 200mm with 1,4 teleconverter and an APS sensor isn't really the stuff you need, I guess.
In the near future I hope to share a better one in terms of noise, sharpness and detailn through getting closer and by using a longer focal length lens for instance a 400mm.
This photo is taken from about 3 meters or so. The hide wasn't really effective; unbelievable how they just know, you are there.

hello Annick

Hi Annick,
So you got the side view showing the Yellow flash and it is sharp but a bit over exposed. Good pose but the light background is making the bird blend in.
You are right they do know you are there and any movement scares them. Use the tripod especially if you have a video head.
Regards,
Peter

This is so beautiful. Lovely composition, interesting to see.
