Female Chaffinch (Fringilla coelebs)

I'm thrilled with this shot because the overall feel of the image was not an accident. On a relatively bright day, I noticed one branch shrouded in shadows where the occasional avian visitor caught just a sliver of sunlight. I had to wait, but the end result has, I think, a painterly feel and a wonderful vibe.
