Good enough then. I was starting to wonder where my pastel bird lady had gone! A fine image Jane! A delight to see you and your unique photos posting.

Great to see your work again, Jane. Hope all is well with you.
This is an adorable capture of Lesser Goldfich perched on your customary tree.
Except for slight noise on two leaves, it is a lovely shot.
Thanks and regards.

'' la vie en rose'' Your image makes me smiling, thank you!
Keeping in touch:
A female American Goldfinch lays her eggs in July, and takes sole responsibility for incubating them.
As this involves sitting on the eggs for hours at a time, the male visits her frequently to bring her food.
The birds call to each other to keep contact, using a distinctive call that helps the male to find the female.
The goldfinch's attractive song has led to its being called, inaccurately the wild canary.

Excellente exploitation d'une lumière bien maitrisée valorisant le sujet sous des couleurs pour le moins surprenantes.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
The picture is fine in terms of exposure and POV. But this time I see an abnormal variation in color temperature, density (grain) and contrast.
Is possible that performance with full Zoom SX30IS has to do, but I think rather the "white balanced AUTO selected" no have well managed the environment conditions. That happens to me sometimes with my little SX110 and then I use "sunny or cloudy" with conditions. I usually also adjust the white balance manually if are required environmental conditions.
Well, I suppose you're adapting to your new camera, and these things can happen!

This is another fine perch facing the foliage.
Interesting that the bird is perched on the leaf, I think and not on the twig. Nice capture with fine details.
Thanks and kind regards - Jusni

I have been gone for a while but I'm glad to see your posting nice composition and sharp imah=ge of an interesting subject.One thing it seem that the image colors is a little of to me the white balance show to much blue tint but that is only my opinion nice presentation anyway.

Nice image my dear, working with a new camera is always a challenge especially one with all that zoom. Please send some of your Arizona heat up north please.
PS Lucy says hi.
