Double-barred Finch

Double-barred Finch (Image ID 40455)
CommentThat’s interesting, notice it has a swollen crop? This bird was sitting quietly and alone in the leaf-litter whilst the remainder of the family group moved about and chattered above. It was pre-digesting the contents of its crop in preparation for feed its young. The lighting and the special moment were set by the circumstances. All I have to do is get the composition and the technical aspects right for presentation in a photo comp.
