Zebra Finch

Zebra Finch (Image ID 40296)
CommentI was very pleased to capture this image of a finch drinking. After many failed attempts I managed to get an image that was useful. They are so quick, they take a few sips of water and then they are gone. It meets my criteria for a suitable competition entry as the bird is sharply focused, there is a nice catchlight in his eye and the background is softly blurred. It is also a good representation of the striking colours of these finches. I also like the partial reflection of the bird in the water even though it is not particularly sharp.
