Bullfinch (Pyrrhula pyrrhula)

I was a little bit upset with these, shooting the wrong way. It seems that I'm not able to catch the Bullfinch properly, ah well, some time in the future....................



Woops, I slipped

  5. A tough bird to photograph at any time. Nicely caught if a little over exposed.

  18. I'm having similar problems in my garden at the moment Bob - birds feeding in the shade with bright sunlight behind them. Seems we're better off when it's a little cloudy!

    You've done really well to capture this handsome fellow!!

  23. such a SUPER bird; I love them! Well it's not exactly like doing a studio portrait when we set out to take birding photographs; they're not always co-operative with facing the light rather than having it as a backdrop etc. Plus, getting them to 'stand still' long enough to get the best shot ........don't we LOVE challenges? One thing I think we display is patience. Somehow that waiting just seems to take us to another space and irons out any of the day-to-day hassles; it's all worth it.

  24. I see that it is almost spring there. Although you are not satified with the pictures of the Finch, Bob, your pictures are better than I have ever made. Greetings, Joke

  30. Nice bird - sometimes its just better to watch than worry about shooting into the light (or what ever!)

    Cheers and thanks for linking to WBW.

  31. I'm sure the birds always pick their spots in the shade just to annoy us Bob! One day they'll make a mistake and we'll be there and ready to get that perfect shot!!...[;o)
