Hallo Paul,
Lang geleden! Goed weer eens een foto van je te zien.
Mooie foto trouwens van deze sijs. De invulflits was precies wat het beeld nodig had. Prachtige natuurlijke kleuren. Uitstekende scherpte ook. De achtergrond contrasteert perfect.
De beste wensen voor jou en je familie en een gezond 2010,

HI Paul,
these siskins are so cute - I love them.
You captured this one realy nice and it remembers me to a day, some weeks ago.
We have a big thuja in front of the house.
I came home with my car - and suddenly more than 100 siskins started up from there into the sky. After a few minutes they came back to eat more of the seeds inside the thuja - such as we can see very well on your shot.
It was amazing to see - and to hear them.

So thanks for your shot, greetings
Sabine - wishnugaruda

Hello Paul,
Excellent capture with a very good use of the flash. This siskin could find something to eat. TFS,

Hello Paul!
Not too colourful picture but sowing a rather rare bird species. I like clarity and flash work. Details and sharpness are also very nice for watching.
Only the note would be a little longer as for me :)
All the best and have a nice 2010!
