I like your title. Whenever a bird or other animal pauses and looks at the camera long enough for me to snap a decent shot, I always say, "He's a poser!" She's a beautiful little finch. (And, my, what a proud puffy chest.)
Awwwwww, beautiful images Brian.
You captured its beauty... perfectly.
I do love all the shades of brown in this image - and who says brown is dull?
