Gert, you are a 'wealthy' nature photographer with a mind-boggling collection of first rate pictures and you occasionally keep on sending one of your masterpieces our way here on TN.
The Goldfinch in your picture from Cyprus looks adorable in the bright sunshine.
I too wish you Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

This is a super image for many reasons. Firstly I love the golden sunlight that is so beautifully seen in the scene. Secondly I love the dried twigs and branches with its pretty shapes. These branches also create an ideal frame around the bird. Thirdly your beautiful main subject, The European Goldfinch which you captured with such preciseness and grace. What a beauty! Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

I had miss that beautiful composition once again nice point of view and razor sharp image with fantastic natural colours.Very glad to see you back,I understand your point when you say that you had lost desire to shoot it also happen to me sometime but it is due to the lack of interesting subject but as soon as I find one desire come back.
