|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Pyrrhula pyrrhula has arrived in our orchard. The photo specimen is a male, feeding on the buds of a Crataegus monogyna at sunset. Late winter can cause serious damage to the flower buds of certain fruit (especially plums and peaches). The plumage of the male is very striking, and his unmistakable claim.|
The picture was taken about 10 m. the bird, with tripod and AF - S and not AF-C because I've found that the accuracy is higher in perching birds.
Cropped and adjusted the focus in Lightroom 3.

I must say this is truly a gorgeous looking bird. You must have been excited to capture such a beautiful image of him and in tac sharp focus. Love the composition and attractive natural colors. Well done!!
Very nice, although I might have cropped it differently. May I try with a WS?
