Hi All,

Happy new year and may everyone have the possibility to do lots of Nature Photography this year.

Made this capture a while ago in our garden,its still minus 10 degrees overhere,so quite cold,bit the sun is shining for a change,

Once again the same bird (siskin) as a few days ago,I guess they like the seeds from our thuja,

Thanks for your visit and enjoy the weekend

Hallo Paul,
Mooie foto om het jaar mee te starten. De beste wensen voor dit nieuwe jaar.
De kleuren zijn prachtig met de sneeuw boven in. Een echte winterfoto. Uitstekende scherpte. Goed getimed met dit oog contact.
Veel plezier in Zuid Afrika,
Peter

Hello Paul,
A happy New Year to you!
A fine capture of a male Siskin feeding on thuja seeds taken from a great POV in a fine pose to show its features with excellent sharpness and colours.
It is only minus 5 here but photography opportunities are virtually absent1
Thanks and best wishes,
Ivan

Hi Paul. I fine close up of the Siskin. They will be glad of the seed in the cold weather you have been having. Taken with good detail and natural colours. You used the flas well. TFS.

Hello Paul,
Very nice photo of Siskin. Very good BG in natural colours. In my countryside I met this species only on fields or high on the trees.
Regards, Pawel

Hej Paul,
No such beauties in our Thuja hedge but then there are not many seeds on it this year. It's in fact ages since I saw a Siskin last and it's lovely to see yours!! It clings on to the Thuja in a very nice pose and details and colours are beautiful!
TFS and all the best wishes for the coming year! Cheers, Ulla

Very good capture of this bird.
Good colors and clarity of photo.Well done.
Best regards.Alin.

Hello Paul,
Nice capture, very sharp, with good management of the flash. You came very close to this lovely bird! Well done! All the best for the New Year,
Catherine

Hello Paul,
Happy New year to you too. Hope you also get excellent opportunities to make wonderful pictures.
Beautiful picture of this lovely Siskin clinging to an ice capped tree. Remarkable sharpnes, details and colours.
Thanks for the share,
Smitha.
