[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Another photo taken at the Ynys Hir RSPB reserve. This chaffinch was waiting on a branch for his turn on the feeder.

The chaffinch is a very common and familiar bird in Britain. Its call is well recognised and only has a slight variation between individuals. They can be found anywhere where there are trees and bushes, this includes gardens, parks and farmland. They stay in Britain all year round and are regularly seen visiting bird feeders.

Hello Sion,
The backlight in the photo is very beautiful. It isolates the Chaffinch good from the darker BG. Excellent sharpness, POV and a nice composition.

Hi Sion,

A very beautiful picture of this bird that I wish we had here. The colors and clarity of this Chaffinch are topnotch and he is very striking. His face, eye, wings and plumage are fantastic. I love the pose on the tree, the wonderful setting and the fine composition.
