[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Chaffinch's large double white wing bars, white tail edges and greenish rump easily identify this 14–16 cm long species. The breeding male is unmistakable, with his reddish underparts and a blue-grey cap. The female is drabber and greener, but still obvious.

Very cool weather, snowy days, for this spring in Varsag!

Hello Szabo,

This is an excellent portrait of this beautiful little bird.. The pose is splendid with great composition. I love the details, very crisp and clear with fine colors and natural tones. The exposure and DOF used are spot on as it did justice to the beauty you've captured. TFS and have a good day.


excellent closeup of the bird. good work.

Hello Jozsef,
A little winter, a bit of spring, a fantastic backdrop for the magnificent finches.

fine composition for this cute bird and good background. tfs.

Ciao Szabo. Impressive DOF, razor detaisl and sharp. Beautiful colours against the winter environment.


Hello Jozsef,

Hope you are well, it is getting hotter here but I do hope spring will get better in your part of the world and soon there will be flowers....smile.
This is an amazing shot of this wonderful Chaffinch. In snowy conditions, you have focused it perfectly and it is as good an image is that of Christodoulos. Classic shot indeed!Thanks a lot for sharing this superb shot and also for your kind comments to my lowly photos....take care....warmest regards/Abid

One of the greatest images of a Chaffinch, I have seen recently Jozsef ! Absolutely flawless, clarity fine natural colors and composition. Very...very pleasing image indeed!

Bonjour Jozsef,
Trčs bon angle de prise de vue en plongée valorisant bien le sujet.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Buna Joska,
O alta captura superba cu detalii si culori de invidiat. De remarcat la obiectivul Nikon de 300 mm este ca lucreaza excelent si in conditii de lumina slaba. Culorile sunt chiar mai bine redate decat in conditii de iluminare puternica.

so beautiful bird, your scene and composition, the winder performance is great!
regards Jozsef

Szia Joska,
Nem is csodálkozom,hogy szomorú az Erdei pintyed,hisz mindjárt húsvét s még hó lepi az ágakat!Azért lehet,ha meglátná a rolla készült képedet-felvidulna,hiszen szebb a valóságnál!-Gratula

Hello Joska,
Very nice photo of this Chaffinch in beautiful natural colours and excellent sharpness. Nice POV and composition.

Hi Jozsef,
very good photo of this quite common bird. Perfect point of view and really nice colours.
Thanks for sharing,

Hallo Jozsef,
a very beautiful portrait of the Chaffinch male, outstanding sharpness and very beautiful natural colours in a suggestive winter scenery
Best regards

Hello Szabo
Superbe composition tout s'hamonise bien, le BG, l'oiseau et la branche oů il est posé sont superbes. Les couleurs et la netteté sont aussi parfaites.

Félicitation et bonne journée...JP
