I said in a previous post after visiting some Rowan Trees in the Parkland that I must return there again, as there was plenty of bird feeding activity and if I did so on a brighter day that would be an advantage.
This is the result of my visit and as you can see the male Bullfinch was putting in a stirling performance.

WOW - excellent pics of a real beauty Roy...ReplyDelete
the GH3/100-300 combo must be quite fast focusing?
Thanks Tricia. The 100-300 is pretty good in good light, but does not have the same performance as the 35-100 or the 12-35. However, for the price its pretty good.Delete
it's a spectacular bird Roy; so handsome! Having a feast on the berries; lovely to see; great photos!ReplyDelete
wat een prachtige achtergrond om een mooie serie van deze mooie vogel te maken Roy hij is meesterlijk.ReplyDelete
Roy, it was worth going back to get some images of this cracking little bird, what a difference the sun makes?....[;o)ReplyDelete
The light certainly helped Trevor as that particular lens performs better with it.Delete
Great set of pictures Roy.ReplyDelete
What a little beauty he is.
Bullfinches are simply gorgeous - and some beautiful shots there.ReplyDelete
Hi Roy, this is nice, the birds look 'happy' i.m.o. having food and nice weather. Enjoy it!ReplyDelete
These pics are amazing, especially the first ones with this gorgeous male in flight to catch a bay!
Do you have many of them where you are?
They are pretty rare in my area
Cheers Roy, keep well
Thanks Noushka, there are a few around, but the pairs are quite spread out.Delete
Truly wonderful photos, Roy. The colors are so intense and you captured so much of the bird's personality.ReplyDelete
It's such a relief that we had so many berries this year and that it's been mild weather wise, the birds have plenty of food and I hope it stays that way. I've not had as many visitors to my feeders so far as I did last year at this time, so I'm saving money too!!!ReplyDelete
Hopefully the weather will stay reasonably mild through the winter Helena.Delete
A gorgeous bird and those first two shots are really amazing!ReplyDelete
Roy wat is dit een mooie serie en heel prettig om naar te kijken.ReplyDelete
I'm very envious of your bullfinches once again - still no sign of any here. All the photos are beautiful, but those first two are amazing.ReplyDelete
Great shots Roy....ReplyDelete
These are stunning shots Roy and indeed all of your recent posts have been superbly illustrated :-) Apologies for the lack of comments lately but I've been very busy with one thing or another but hopefully after Christmas I'll have more time for blogging again.ReplyDelete
PS. I hope you and your family have a great Christmas :-)
All the best to you and your family for Christmas and the New Year.
Really cool these photos.ReplyDelete
As the bullfinch flying even eat the berries is wonderful to see.
Wonderful series again.
Greats photos Roy, I would like to photograph this bird too. It is very very beautiful.ReplyDelete
