[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Not a great photo again I know, but it is nice to post a shot that was taken today, as opposed one from the archives.
The Greenfinch is a common garden visitor in the U.K., but its numbers have fallen in recent years. Apparently it is a bird which is suseptible to disease.
As far as my locality goes however, this winter there appears to be a healthy population, so perhaps its future is O.K. after all.

Hi John. Thanks for the comments on the Blackbird. .We have seen very few Greenfinches this year in the garden. You have taken a good inflight shot of this one. captured just at the right moment with the bird over head. Good detail and natural colours. TFS.

Exellent moment, beautiful and beautiful photo... Congratulation John.. GUS

Hi John,

Hello John,
Taking shot in flight isn't easy with such good result. Perfectly sharp and colours also are very good.
Regards, Pawel

Hi John,
Excellent moment. It is not easy to take a bird in flight.
