[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Bullfinch, Common Bullfinch or Eurasian Bullfinch (Pyrrhula pyrrhula) is a small passerine bird in the finch family Fringillidae. In Anglophone Europe it is known simply as Bullfinch, as it is the original bird to bear the name bullfinch.
This bird breeds across Europe and temperate Asia. It is mainly resident, but many northern birds migrate further south in the winter. Mixed woodland with some conifers is favoured for breeding, including parkland and gardens.

Hello Pierre
nice perch and very nice elements of red fruits. I could see the shiny dark eye of the bird.
Very pleasant view.


very difficult lighting. anyway you managed very well. good work. tfs.

Hello Mr.Pierre,
Beautiful species in the bird family.With due respect I want to say when taking a bird photograph,we try to keep its face in focus(You know it).But here face is covered under a veil of flower.
I think you agree with me.

I can see the bright black right eye.BG is splendid.Natural colour is truly good.

Thanks for sharing,
Awaiting for your next beautiful snap,
Kind regards,

好可愛的鳥 姿式很特別

Hi Pierre,great capture in this acrobatic pose,very good details too in a terrible backlight,i like it!Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano

Hello Pierre,
A Good composition with the Bullfinch in it's natural feeding habits. A difficult shot against the light BG but you managed that very well. I would have liked to see a bit more of the bird's facial features.
Best regards,

Hello Pierre,
Lovely capture with its wonderful stance,excellent clarity and details.
TFS and my regards,

Hello Pierre.
This image is beautiful like some Chinese water color painting. The perch and those colorful berries are amazing.
