[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hi all,
This is another picture I got with my TZ8, simply because it was easy to carry and had it out at the right time. I was at Glaslyn nature reserve looking for the nesting Ospreys who feed at the lake, but had no luck, so while my camera was set up on tripod I went for a little walk and saw this chaffinch singing.
Hope you all like.

Hi Sion. Some times we never know what we will end up getting when you are out with the camera. This is a unusual pose looking up at the Chaffinch from below. Stands out well from thee clear blue sky. With good detail and natural bright coloures. Well taken TFS.

Yeah i do like it Sion, it speaks of the season well, with the buds just starting to sppear on the trees.
Well composed, with sharp details, those Lumix are great. I like the bright blue BG too.

Hello Sion,
great capture with superb details and very good sharpness.
Nice composition.

Pleasant capture of a singing chaffinch Sion, I like the strong blue of the background here. The exposure looks perfectly well balanced too. Impressive work.
TFS and have a great WE MF!
