[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I am loading this picture of the Female Chaffinch which shows the disease that affects many of the Chaffinches. I believe it to be called Bumble Foot. And it seems to affect the Female more. Although looking very painful it does not seem to affect them too much. This Female was quite happy chasing away the Males so she could get at the food.

Chaffinch ( Fringilla coelebs ) One of the commonest and most widespread birds in Britain, favouring a wide variety of habitats including gardens, parks and woodland. In winter numbers are boosted by the influx of north european birds. Song comprises a descending trill with a characteristic final flurish. Feeds mainly on Insects during the summer months but seeds in the winter where they often gather in large flocks

Hi Nicholas, great shot with sharp drawing of details and very harmonic colour scheme.TFS

This one really catches the tone and softness in a finely detailed way. It is a stand above image. A super post for you Nick!

YOu are right -- it looks quite painful and yet I have seen a budgie with the most arthritic curled up feet still get along just fine. She is just very choosy about her landing spots.

very fine details

do you put out seeds for them?

Hi Nick,

Her poor little feet! You show the disease off very well. The rest of her is still very pretty. Nice pose - good colors - good details - a lovely background.

Hello Nick,
Remarkable note. I didn't know about the disease. The photo is excellent. Very good sharpness and great natural colours. DOF against the dark BG is superb. Beautiful composition.

Bonjour Nicholas

Poor little thing. Nonetheless, an amazingly beautiful shot!
You have an eye for composition! Well done!

Hello Nick,

Very interesting notes to accompany your excellent shot! I have never heard of this disease before!
The sharpness and details are superb! The female shows up beautifull against the blurred, unfussy b/g and the colours are very natural!
