Good fast camera work upwards at the angle where the bird obviously felt safe for a bit! I tend to get dizzy looking up but it may be my camera weight....Nice presentation...All over good show!

Hi Hilary, I like this. Great color and clarity. I'm seeing a strange horizontal line across part of the shot, however. If you look a couple of cms above the foot, there is a strange digital line that runs off to the left side of the shot. Or is it just that my computer is playing tricks on me?

Wonderful shot of this proud looking Chaffinch. Lovely colours and sharpness on its plumage with superb natural lighting and exposure levels. I like the natural setting and the mossy branch it is perched on. Excellent POV and composition. Kudos.

Hello Hillary, What a nice plummage here. The bird's eye is actually covered due to the plummage. Excellent sharpness and lovely detail. Ganesh

We all know that birds like high trees. We can we do? I like the picture so much. It is not look noise. Exposure, lights and colours are wonderful. Sharpness and details of the bird features and twig are simply great. Diagonal composition of the image is superb. My compliments. Next perfect bird image from you for our pleasure.

Nice point of view and the little fellow is captured with fine details as he is enjoying the spring sun!
Good reproduction of the plumage, and I notice the lichen on the branch...
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for support and advice during my time here!
It has been great and I have learned a lot through the many fine presentations in TrekNature!

What a great pov to capture this male chaffinch! His fine buff chest looks full and ready to force out his distinctive 'bowler' song!
Lovely sharp details and good composition with the transverse, lichen covered twig. Good natural colours!

Wonderful view of this chaffinch peering down at the nice lady with the funny box. You have caught some lovely details in the feathers and you have shown off the lovely blush colours. Good DOF and sharpness
Your focus and details are very nice on this Hilary. You can either not get the shot or get it and not worry so much about the surroundings. I prefer to take it, because there is always a way to work with it.
You have the light, and a good point of view.
I did a workshop to it, and it is something I have to do as well, because many of the birds I take have the same branches around, and I want the shot.
I like it.

Tes photos d'oiseaux sont toujours plus belles les unes que les autres! Tu es une vrai spécialiste! J'aime bien la zone de netteté sur la branche avec sa mousse et l'oiseau. L'oiseau est bien mis en valeur dans son cadre et les couleurs sont chaudes. Super photo!
Merci et au revoir...JP

From this perspective, the bird looks plump but cute, Hilary.
You have managed a well framed image with perfect clarity and quite natural colours.
The bird and the branch stand out sharp and clear against the OOF bokeh BG.
TFS and regards.
