I got lucky and had the pleasure of observing and recording this little sequence of a male House Finch feeding its young.

Hello John:wave:

Wonderful images, did you capture those in your garden?

Great timing, I somehow wish you had more DoF and SS here, although I must admit the blur on the wings and little feet is quite cool as it suggests movement.

Love the behavioural aspect and continuity within the sequence, very well done! As well as vibrant colours. Should you wish the two protagonists to stand out more you could perhaps reduce the greens in the BG, but it's all up to you.

The baby finch is so cute! You inspire me, I am planning to spend some time in the garden tomorrow and will try capture similar images of my finches as well as sunbirds:w3

Many thanks for sharing, have a wonderful week-end:)

Kind regards,
