That's indeed a lot of birds together in your garden. Superb photo of this Greenfinch in perfect sharpness and details. Very beautiful natural colours. The frontal close POV is also perfect. Nice OOF BG. A beauty!

Ich bin froh, dass du dich vom weissen Mantel nicht hast abschrecken lassen und dieses schöne Bild geschossen hast. Das Vögelschen sieht so niedlich aus und die ausgezeichnete Schärfe führt zu einer ausgeprägten Detailzeichnung. Ich hoffe, dass die ganze Vogelschar in deinem Garten genug zum Futtern hatte...
As liebs Grüessli

A superb sharp action shot showing how easy it is for a greenfinch to take the sunflower seed out of its husk.
A fine close capture taken with great sharpness, lighting and colours in this fine portait of a male Greenfinch.
Thanks and have a good weekend,

Super. Great photo Sabine. Very clear and sharp. Looks like he is giving thanks for the food. We all are waiting for spring to come, and have a lot of birds and insects.
Take care and have a gret WE.

Very nice and funny picture that you posted here. The bird is very lovely. You captured it as tasteful as the sunflower seed :) As you know, we like the seed of sunflower so much, as cookies :))

I have never seen a Greenfinch before, so this is a real treat to view. Looks like you were able to get right next to this little beauty. The detail is super fine and the colors are very natural. Great DOF and wonderful eye contact. Well done!!

Lucky you, Sabine, having so many visitors!
This guest is a handsome nut-cracker. What a beautiful image you have got there with those stunning details and colours on the chest! The eye in particular is ravishing.
TFS and wish you a better weather.

Also näher und präziser würde es nicht mehr gehen...jede einzelne Feder ist auszumachen! Und der Vogel scheint die Fotografin gutmütig anzuschauen. Scheint sich gar nicht stören zu lassen. Perfekt dargestellt dieser Fink.
Bravo immer wieder!

It looks like you are old friends and sometimes get together.....hehehe
I don't know about the weather, but your relationship with this little one is so warm my friend.
I loved the plume details and your eye contact shot Sabine.

Wonderful capture of the hungry greenfinch, fantastic sharpness, colors, excellent POV and above all, awesome facial expression and pose. You're lucky to have so many visitors in Your garden - imagine a less snowy winter: You would mostly photograph sparrows (if You would), because everyone should have enough food. With this I'd like to say there's something good in everything which is bad, now our long and cold winter.
Congrats and tfs, friendly regards, László

I am glad that you have also so long lens. As you macro lens it helps you to create stunning shots. I am impressed with magnification and three-dimensional effect of the image. Details of the bird and seed are unbelievable. Fantastic work. My congratulations.

Great close-up of the birdy. Excellent sharpness on the eye and perfect exposure. Tight cropping brings all attention to him and even at F/14 the DOF is so shallow (main caracteristic of close-up) that the BG is "blurry" enough not to distract. Great work and TFS.
It's too bad Tamron doesn't make that lens with USM and IS. It would be a great competitor to Nikon who make a lens with the same range for over $6000 CAN. I am actually searching for a good versatile telephoto zoom lens, but can't afford the Nikon one. Unless Nikon release a new version of there 80-400mm, Sigma will be my choice. But Tamron make great lens (90 macro and this one proves it)
