[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The hawfinch (Coccothraustes coccothraustes) is a passerine bird in the finch family Fringillidae. Its closest living relatives are the evening grosbeak (Hesperiphona vespertinus) from North America and the hooded grosbeak (Hesperiphona abeillei) from Central America especially Mexico.

This bird breeds across Europe and temperate Asia. It is mainly resident in Europe, but many Asian birds migrate further south in the winter. It is a rare vagrant to the western islands of Alaska.

Hello Alexandr,
Beautiful and perfect background. Quite well focused on its eye. Colors look nice. Composition could have been better ;too much BLANK SPACE and to me it doesn't look great to place the bird heart of the frame. I'll try to do a WS tomorrow and will post. Bottom branch is also unwanted here, in my humble opinion.
Thanks for sharing,
Regards and keep shooting,

Hello Alexandr,

Lovely picture of the Hawfinch with nice color saturation. The focus was perfect on the eye resulting in the lovely catchlight on the eye.

A tighter crop would have helped.

Warm Regards,
