Hello Maciek,
This is a very nice photo of a male Chaffinch. Taken from a very good frontal POV in splendid colours and excellent sharpness and details. Beautiful is the snow in fore- and background.

Hi Maciej,
Very nice portrait of a beautiful bird. Amazing colors
and excellent detail and focus. Nice blurred background.
The snow recalls me that winter is coming.
Regards Jiri.

Ciao Maciek, great capture of lovely bird in nice pose on beautiful lighting BG, splendid sharpness, fine details and wonderful colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Our birds disappear in the winter with exceptions of which I feed. Your example of a mountain bird so small is remarkable as an addition and as a good photo. Very nice and quite the change from my last visit!

Hello Maciej,
The Chaffinch is certainly a beautiful bird as we can clearly see from your photo. I love the very low POV you chose for this shot as well as the fine detail you managed to capture. Looks like it was having a great time pecking at the snow on this particular day.

Hello Maciej
never thought this bird would thrive so well over there in the cold surroundings. Exciting low angle shot and lively light to enhance the beauty an feathers.
Nice details presented too.
