    I dont know much about photography, but why dony you ask for advice in the photography section. I think it may have something to do with the strong light of the sky.

    I am sure you will suss it. I hope the Greenfinch keeps visiting.

    Great photos Highlander but please do something about that sharp bit of wire on your birdtable, it could be nasty!
    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
    Courage to change the things I can,
    And wisdom to know the difference.
