[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

Carduelis carduelis

A highly coloured finch with a bright red face and yellow wing patch. Sociable, often breeding in loose colonies, they have a delightful liquid twittering song and call. Their long fine beaks allow them to extract otherwise inaccessible seeds from thistles and teasels.

Hello Les,
such a pretty view. The composition is so artistic with the curving small branch. The bird gives an exciting pose, glancing a bit.
A well presented in fine sharp details and good measure of light.
Very special capture.
