Both pictures are just great Karen. Spot on focus and pose - can't choose between them.

Beautiful close photos of both birds with so much detail to see.

Mersad said...

Beautiful images as always. I really like the background too. That's always that hardest thing to get right, since they can be very busy. The birds really pop out nicely! Thanks for sharing.

Wonderful shots of two birds I may see most days in the winter but always a delight to gaze on even in photos. The house finches nest and make home the ivy growing on the back of the house. Today with snow on the ground and falling from the sky the pinkish purple feathering popped.

Tina Fariss Barbour said...

These are beautiful! Love the snow in the background in the second one.
