Nice shot Donna. How about putting a small tree at a nearby vantage point that the little fella's could use as a perch if you want to eliminate the feeder in your shots?.....cheers....Don

Good shots Donna. Ifthe feeder is an issue, you could try framing the image with the subject in the leftmost part of the frame with negative space showing in middle to right portion. This way, only a wee bit of the feeder is in the shot (the portion the bird is standing on) and both the bird and that bit of feeder are in focus. I did a quick & dirty PS job withyour finch to illustrate. Cheers, Dan

Nice shots Donna, feeders are a real draw for the birds, now just put the feeder close to a bush or small tree so they can fly to that and finish their snack.
