Perfect 7!  But I have to know, do you use surgical adhesive to get them to stay in just the perfect spot for composition ;-)?  All of your birds and branches are perfectly placed.... Mike

Thank you!  This is about 50% of the original image.  I had about 40 shots of this finch in different "poses" and moved around some to get the background to be a better fit.

I'm just lucky that the finch stayed put for 40 shots...it was cold, which may explain it.

Thank you!  Yes, I like to catch their expressions.  The pine siskens have returned today and the light is good...so maybe I'll catch a few good shots a bit later:-)

I have some catching up to do Richard. This shot is so cute with the bird's head tilted this way. Lovely lighting and good detail. I enjoy these shots so much.

kind regards, Gail

Thank you, Gail!  

It is good to hear from you!  I'm just getting back to being more active here and with my camera and have been having fun with the birds!

Best regards!
