Greenfinch

I grabbed this shot out of my (open) office window this afternoon during one of the rare moments of decent light. It's a pity this chap didn't stray to my side of the garden wall – the picture would have been improved somewhat by the inclusion of the whole bird – but I still like the gentle colours, the attractive bokeh of the farm buildings and sky in the background and the perfect profile offered by the subject.
