[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Pyrrhula pyrrhula has arrived in our orchard. The photo specimen is a male, feeding on the buds of a Crataegus monogyna at sunset. Late winter can cause serious damage to the flower buds of certain fruit (especially plums and peaches). The plumage of the male is very striking, and his unmistakable claim.
The picture was taken about 10 m. the bird, with tripod and AF - S and not AF-C because I've found that the accuracy is higher in perching birds.
Cropped and adjusted the focus in Lightroom 3.
