Bullfinch


Photo Information
A long awaited chance to photograph a Bully came along today at the "Three Sisters" reserve in Wigan, The K5`s shutter performed well in rapid fire mode and I have to say! a lot quieter the my mates noisy Canon 5D!!.

Great shot Cliff - I agree with you about the K-5, I just love mine and the quiet shutter is such a bonus when shooting wildlife or people!

Super shot. I agree about the quiet shutter (although from having the K-7)

Tbh it must be two years since I last saw a Bullfinch! and yesterday three turned up at the feeding station, great place and as Arnie said..."I`ll be back".

Thanks for all the comments, much appreciated.
Cliff.
