CommentI have entered this photo as I like the differing head angles of the three finches. I also like the three quarter front and side on views that provide good detail of the beautiful patterns, feather structure and colouration (including a glimpse of the bronze-yellow rump) that the differing points of view allow. I was also pleased that the three birds were on the same focal plane for my lens and that the perch was in full shade – helping prevent blow out of the blacks and whites in the photo.
EquipmentCanon 7D Mark II with Canon EF 600mm f4/L USM non IS lens at 600mm, 1/125 sec, f7.1, ISO 250 on tripod.
