Fighting Finch by TerribleTer Fighting Finch by TerribleTer
The weaver finches are often remarkably aggressive at my bird feeder. This one was preparing to chase another off, but it's also another instance of how common birds can display uncommon beauty.

My pleasure, with having weekly features, I find that it increases the possibility of being included considerably.

That together with the fact that you keep on submitting such lovely work :w00t:

Thanks for your kind words. I have a bird feeder right outside a glass sliding door at the back of my house. Since my camera is mounted on a tripod inside the house, I take multiple frames per second at 1/4000 of a second whenever birds fly up to the feeder. This particular bird arced back toward the feeder in just the right position for the late afternoon sun to make it pop. But I usually have to take several hundred pictures to get one that's of truly postable quality. I'm still waiting to get a good cardinal shot (they don't fly up quite as often). :-)
