It is really annoying when you have the opportunity to get a shot you would really like, but fate gets in the way. Driving in to town this morning (shopping!) I noticed a bird in a hedge by the side of the road. A beautiful male bullfinch sitting in full view on a nice branch. I couldn't stop, even to point it out to the wife, as there was a car right behind - and I didn't have my camera with me anyway. For a while afterwards, I had the image imprinted on my mind.
At the moment my photography...
