Feeds mainly on insects during the summer but will eat seeds in the winter.

Nice clear sharp image with plenty of punch. I like it.

bonjour nicholas
c'est evidement un oiseau que je connais et aime beaucoup,je trouve qu'il manque de details dans le plumage mais les couleurs sont belles et la netteté bonne.
votre objectif est il "DG"(optimisé pour le numerique)?

Hi Nicholas

Lovely shot. Nice colours. TFS.

Très beau cliché de ce pinson des arbres. Je lui trouve la peau des pattes un peu bizarre mais cela n'enlève rien à la qualité de cette très belle photo.

Hello Nick,
This is close, wow! This is an excellent capture of this beautiful bird. I like its colors a lot, exposure, lightning, details, pose and DOF. You caught also a nice catch light in its eye. Very well done and TFS,
