Great photo of this goldfinch, making me jealous as I am yet to get a picture after seeing them many times.
The detail is excellent and I love the colours on these birds.
Great composition and a good OOF background. Once again Ill say your lucky to have such a perfect branch :).
Beautiful capture and TFS

Another fascinating photo. The details in the Goldfinch are really perfect. Beautiful colours and, as usual, also in the BG. Very good frontal POV, DOF and composition.

Hi and Good Morning Nick,
One of my fvorite bird:) love the red face and look her lovely face. Despite a bussy BG you can isolate it expertly by your camera settings MF! Loved this chunky beauty!
TFS and have a nice day!

You're right, this bird looks fantastic with this fluffy feathers! really beatiful! ... the photo is technically perfect (as usual in your photos) but this time 1 point is for the bird and 1 point is yours! :) Beautiful work, thanks for sharing ... Your macro photos of insects are very good, but your shots of birds are absolutely amazing and full of harmony! TFS, regards, Jesús

very nice Nick
I love the fluffy look to it. Beautiful birds the gold finch probably the most common finch where I live.
This one looks like a female - its nearly impossible to tell but the female usually has a smaller red patch on the male it usually extends behind the birds eye more than on this specimen.
