I was lucky to see one of these Zebra finches and was busy photographing it, when all of a sudden I had two of them in my viewfinder. They stuck around for a while so got quite a few shots of them.

    A well captured bird photography. Excellent composition and contrast. The birds pose makes it look like they just finished an argument.. The branch is spliting the image right from bottom to top in a way that gives the comp strength and impact. Well done.
