[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Bullfinch, Common Bullfinch or Eurasian Bullfinch (Pyrrhula pyrrhula) is a small passerine bird in the finch family Fringillidae. In Anglophone Europe it is known simply as Bullfinch, as it is the original bird to bear the name bullfinch.
This bird breeds across Europe and temperate Asia. It is mainly resident, but many northern birds migrate further south in the winter.

Yhis is the breeding form in Transylvania.

very nice picture of this Bullfinch, Jozsef! Amazing close up with good depth and clarity! I think that adding some yellows and red can bring some balance here....right now the image is looking rather cold. Great!

Hello Szabo,

Hope you are doing fine. This is a wonderful photograph of this elegant Bullfinch. The colours are exquisite but most importantly it is the focus and sharpness which make it look so real, so alive.It still seems to be nibbling the seeds when you took the shot. Thanks a lot for sharing a superb photo....take care....warmest regards/Abid

* George's workshop effort is good too.

A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

hello Jozsef
very good picture with great details and super sharpness
beautiful colours to
thanks greeting lou

Salut Joska,
Superba pasare pe care inca nu am intalnit-o in natura. Detaliile si culorile ingrijit redate si unghiul de fotografiere este excelent. Rar se reusesc asa imagini curate.
Sa ne bucuram pana cand nu cresc frunzele........
Pupaza intalnita de mine in zona raului Timis este un vizitator rar in zona mea.
Nu am avut o pozitie foarte buna si nici sa insist nu am reusit deoarece dupa ce am tras poza, pasarea s-a ascuns ca urmare al atacului al unei pasari rapitoare.......

Hello Szabo.
Superb capture.Sharpness,clear details,POV,catchlight in eyes,colors,pose of bird,blurred BG and composition are excellent.Best regards Siggi

Gtrat focus and composition Joska, very well done
