Hello Derek,
What a fantastic start here on TN, welcome!
A great photo in superb sharpness, details, pose with eye contact and an excellent composition. Very beautiful natural colours, including the nice background.
Hope to see a lot more!
The only thing I miss, is a (little) note.

Hi Derek,

Welcome to TN.

A splendid start with this impressive image of the female Bullfinch, with great detail and natural colours taken against a nice plain background.

As PeterZ has mentioned, a note about the subject and any details of adjustments etc are always appreciated by many of the members who are new to Digital Nature Photography.

Hello Derek,
Welcome to TN!
This is a great start: I like the pose and POV showing all the details of this female Bullfinch with fine sharpness and natural colours. The composition with the dead mossy branch is superb. Nice catchlight in the eye too.
A note would be useful, eg. not many outside Europe know the distribution and habits of this species and perhaps where you took this - in your garden?
Thanks and regards,
