CommentI love the simplicity of this image which allows the beauty of the bird to shine. It is not often that these finches come close but I captured this by sitting quietly on the ground waiting as they flit around me, until this one stopped off on a nearby bush (happily with a perfect background) for a few moments, giving me the opportunity for this shot.
