|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Taken yesterday this colourful chap was awaiting his turn at the bird table in our garden. There were about 4 more of his pals on the table already and they would not let him in for a nibble so he hung there until there was some room! They are interesting to watch, especially the way they take a sunflower seed and remove the shell, discard it and eat the kernel, all with their bill and tongue. They will see off most other birds that try to land on the table with the exception of the Francolin (desert grouse) which bullys its way on to the table and scares them off. Critiques welcome as always.|

Lovely composition but that sure is a low shutter speed for a powerful lens which could be the reason the image is a little soft. Pretty picture though and quite a sight I bet
Good pose but as Perry says it could be sharper. I like the colours though, apart from the overexpoed feet!
you can catch the inreresting moment
