I dedicate this to Jane Magen (Jaycee) for all the fabulous bird shots she's posted so far.

I have a feeling this is a Common Canary but I'm nowhere near sure.
Does anyone know what this is?

This was taken at the Tropical Butterfly House, Wildlife and Falconry Centre in Sheffield.

I hope you like this one and thankyou for any comments :-)

Hi Joe,beautifull portrait,wonderfull sharpness and colours,thanks for share this great work,have a nice day,luciano

Hello Joe,
What a beautiful dedication to Jane. I am sure she is going to love this. She really deserves this dedication. She has contributed so many beautiful birds to TN!
I iked thes shot a lot. Superb clarity, sharpness and details. Liked the composition and POV. Thanks for the share,

Hallo Joey
This is a super shot of a beautiful bird. A lovely dedication. The glossy effect on the plumage is very fascinating and interesting. I have seen many of these birds before, but this one is an absolute eye-catcher. I like the different colours, forming stripes on the plumage. The colour of the beak is rather striking, almost like the colour of pearls. The catch light in the eye place the cherry on the cake and rounds of this beautiful photo. Thank you for sharing this beauty with us.
A beautiful portrait. Framing and presentation are excellent.
Kind regards

Hi Joe.
Funny, a bit offended or disappointed expression of your charming model. Very cute portrait work with superb classic composition, plenty attractive details and nice colours. Neutral smooth "canvas" is looked as a BG for these character very well. My best wishes both of you,

Lucky Jane and it makes me wonder..why does Jane get great images of birds and when you dedicated to me I get a spider????? I know your game Joey and I shall get you back one day. mark my words...I say in total jest....maybe:-)

Hi Joe,

Thank you for dedicating this wonderful bird portrait to me. It certainly is a beauty. The face and plummage are marvelous. Very sharp details and great colors. I love the background. I had to laugh at Bob's comments! Thanks again Joe.

Hello Joey, this is another fantastic shot! What amazed me in this one when I opened it is the sharpness and the wide depth of field yet it is so sharp. The colours are great too, the feathers are perfect, we could count them and we can contemplate them. Thanks again!


Hi Joe,
Wonderful close up on this beautiful bird. Good use of flash which resulted in sharp image and nice color clarity. Lovely composition.
