An hour in the garden ...

Too many Chaffinch pictures to post so I’ll blog them. These were all taken within an hour in our garden last week.

A nice set JP. I especially like the 'singing on the fence' shots.

Thanks for your comments. For sometime I've thought of using Photobox or similar to produce a photobook. These Chaffinch shots just need a few more adding and I'll have a go. Nobody will see it but it would fill a gap in our bookcase.

Thanks for your comments but you over estimate my knowledge ... the top section were on the ground and the others were on the fence. :)

Forgive the flippancy but I haven't deliberately sorted them - they are as taken.

Hopefully Jane may help out.

Lovely pics, John. I thought that they were all males, as I usually think of the females being shades of brown and green.
