[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This goldfinch is eating the seeds of a very thorny plant. The beak of the goldfinch is long and sharp and adapted to pick the seeds from the plant.
I like to see these birds in action.
Hope you like it as well!

Hi Zeno,

The colors of this Goldfinch are just beautiful. I love the pose on that fascinating looking plant. Nice details of the face, wings, and plummage. I'd love to see one of these some day.

Hi Zeno,
Fine colorful shot of this Finch.
Great POV and pose feeding on the thistle.
The dark emerald BG contrasts wonderfully with the bird.

Hello Zeno
This is a lovely shot of the Goldfinch feeding on what we call in the UK a Teasel.
The lighting is superb and highlights your sharp focussing perfectly.

Hallo Zeno,
Je treft het maar met die Goudvinken. Schitterend contrasterende kleuren met de (ook mooie) achtergrond en erg scherp.
Goed weekend,
Peter

Very impressive. Hope that some day, I'll be able to see one in the wild.

Tal vez alguna vez podamos aceptar que la belleza de la naturaleza no tiene igual y cuidemos de ella.
Maravillosa imagen, la perfección de los colores, el enfoque, la oportunidad la hacen excelente.
Felicitaciones y gracias por una linda imagen que reconforta.

Hello Zeno,

Wonderful shot of this multicolor bird inaction /feeding.
Very good light control for 3D effect.
Very-very sharp and enough DOF to give the blur BG.
Pro job!

Hello Zeno, what a great shot you did ! The sharpness is fantastic, the exposure and colors are impressive and the overall quality is very high. Well done, thaks !

Hallo Zeno,

Ik kan het helaas met de meeste TN members niet eens zijn dat de kleuren zo mooi zijn. Mijn eerste gevoel zegt dat vooral de felle kleuren (dus blauw,geel en rood valt dan weer mee) een beetje OVERDONE zijn. Net even te. Ik kan er niet anders van maken. Ik ken het vogeltje ook uit de natuur. Zijn heel mooi gekleurd, dat is ook een feit, maar....Verder is het een schitterende en zeer scherpe compositie. Voor de rest absoluut niets mis mee. Een goede aktiefoto. Prettige avond en tot TFS BOB
