Spent a couple of hours in my hide. It was very cold and not a pleasure to stay in a cold tent but I saw lots of birds. I like the goldfinches. They visit my garden every day.

Wow!! What a beautiful bird!! The US goldfinch is so totally different. I have a shot of it and it is all yellow during the summer. Wonder if yours changes colour for the summer too.

Looks like it was worth the while to sit in the hide. Whites on the bird nicely done, the branch is a little OEed. I would have cropped a little differently so that the bird has space to look into.

TFS!

He Zeno!

Mooie foto van deze Putter! Geweldige kleuren, en die heb je goed vastgelegt, met mooie details. Vorige week heb ik ze ook geprobeert, maar het was een beetje te veel voor me:P Ik ben blij dat t jou wel zo mooi gelukt is. Gefeliciteerd!

Hallo Zeno,

Wat ben jij een geluksvogel dat je zo'n mooi vogeltje in je tuin kan (mag) ontmoeten. Ondanks dat je het koud hebt gehad, is dit toch een schitterend plaatje geworden. Het is net of dit puttertje opgezet is. Zo scherp en kleurrijk. Geweldig. Het is jammer dat de bovenzijde van het paaltje een beetje overbelicht is. Verder mijn complimenten. Groeten en een prettige dag. Bob
