[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I capture this Chaffinch in a wild area of Apuseni mountains, 3-4km away from a human settlement. I was surprised that this bird let me get so close. Usually the birds from the wild areas don't let you to approach to much. It was no scary then the chaffinches that i shoot in parks.
I have no idea what have in it's beak.

Hallo Anghel
The patterns and markings on this chaffinch are very clear and obvious. A wonderful arrangement of colours. All in focus showing great details. A real delight to look at. Perfect exposure and natural background. Thanks for sharing. Much appreciated.
Kind regards

Hello Eliz,

Beautiful picture of the finch, the colours are amazing, the back ground is just complimentary, yes it has something in the beak I can see, some nest materail?. Frankly I would have loved little more space in the front. TFS.

felicitari pentru compozitie!
