[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a second brood Greenfinch chick taken from my hide. Sitting resting and waiting to be fed. Unfortunately it flew to another tree for mother to feed it. It usually takes many hours of patient watching and waiting to get these close shots. I find a regularly used perch, focus on it and then wait and hope. Any movement in the hide usually makes them move on. I use a 1.4x converter on my lens for these pictures and a remote shutter cord.
