Long-tailed Finch, Masked Finch

Long-tailed Finch, Masked Finch (Image ID 39697)
CommentI entered this photo as I was pleased to manage getting the ten small birds all together in focus. I was lucky that the finches were content sitting in the tree warming themselves up. This allowed me time to experiment with several shots at different f stops. I was also pleased with both the direction and strength of the early morning light, giving a soft glow with very few shadows. The perch itself has good character with twisty, curly branches. It was also a bonus for me to capture two species of finches in the one photo. A few background leaves have been removed in post processing.
