    Fabulous! What are these birds? I have them in my yard, too! Is this a composite, and if so, how did you do it? Wow!

I see a winner too! They look sort of icy and frozen, but the background is definitely Spring. I never know the difference between house finches and purple finches, but they sure are amazingly beautiful in this portrayal.

Thanks Cindy and Gord! These are male House Finches (or they may be Purple Finches - they look so much alike that it's hard to tell which is which)- this photo is a composite of 6 photos - combined and masked in CS4 - the trees are so bare here now - I just wanted a touch of Spring - so I added some :o)
