Chaffinch

Some shots of a regular visitor to our garden.The male is quite colourful, although his blue summer-helmet has started to fade. Despite the colour, I find it quite hard to get good pictures of the Chaffinch, somehow they still manage to disappear into the background of branches and shade. All images are cropped to about 66% of original and all are taken through a window (challenge enough in itself). I'm happiest with the second. The third shot of the female is not great (still looks overexposed despite much darkening down), but I thought it's an interesting comparison.
