    Two bird shots in the top 5 - Proof positive that this forum really does appreciate birds/nature photos - especially when they are so beautifully done. Congratulations.

    Thank you so much!! This is a very common and under-appreciated sweet bird. This is my reward for putting bird seeds out throughout the winter :-)

    If I could shoot birds this well through my window - I'd never leave home. The detail, colour, composition and DOF are all excellent.

    Great sharpness for that focal distance and through glass !
Nice background green works well with the finch's colouring.
Would it have been possible to clone out the offshoot that is just in front of the bird? imagine it would be tricky but would make the picture cleaner

    Another very nice shot of this bird showing off the field markings.

    Another fabulous image (I assume from the same photog). Beak and eye tack sharp, beautifully framed, with perfect cropping, head one third down in the frame, generous space around the subject so it is not crowded, and a natural perch to highlight it all. A beautiful shot of a small bird, so difficult to capture as well as you have demonstrated here. Wonderful.

    Nice composition. The vertical branches form sort of a frame for your subject. The background is nicely blurred. The red and green tones are great complementary colors. Well done.
