At one of my visits to the hide there was this male chaffinch bathing in the littel pond infront of the hide. It was a little later already so the light was a little strong already making sure a hard contrast was unavoidable. Still the beautiful colors on this bird made me decide to snap it anyway and check the result at home

Hello Jeroen
beautiful picture, great POV, excellent sharpness and colors
Hello Vanni

Matchless low POV, Jeroen.
The picture has turned out to be an excellent innovation and its impact is stupendous. Those water droplets dispersed by the bathing movement of the bird are beautifully captured.
Well done and TFS!
