    And so to the male Chaffinch after the female posting in the rain, this was shot prior to the rain against a bracken backdrop.

    Cheers Wayne, be great to get back to SA and shoot in some decent light. Just corresponding with an old BPN chum based in Cape Town re R5, and perhaps in the future we may hook up.

    Cheers

    LOL Gabriela, not sure it checks all the Avian requirements, but fun to photograph for sure and the lichen is a great indicator on how clean the air is.

    Very nice indeed, I would have preferred a little more background to make it a little wider other than that it looks pretty much ideal.

    Love the color on that background. Nice lichen encrusted perch as well. Neat looking bird.

    I looked at your site. When's the last time you updated it? Looks like it's from 1998.
