Hello Sergey,
If this Hawfinch should know how he was photographed by you, than he was sitting the whole day on your shoulder.

Great capture with impressive detail and great colours. Congratulations!

Hi Sergey,
Nice and a detailed shot of the hawfinch. You managed the light very well, the parts in the shadow have really good details. I liked the composition. TFS

Très belle photo. Je trouve très bon le contraste entre le flou de l'arrière plan et la netteté du sujet. vraiment bien.

What a beautiful picture of this hawfinch. the colours are so very rich making a wonderful shot.
