Hi Bev, nice close up. Great color and the detail in the feathers is superb.

You are happier photographer than I am. I have many shots of the species. It is widespread in our region. However, all shots are taken from far distance and not so good. Yours is amazing. Excellent portrait of the cute redpoll. Colouration is very attractive and more rich than colours of our birds. I like nice cropping and framing of the image. My kind regards and compliments.

This is almost a macro of a male Redpoll, at least I have never seen a shot of one so close up.
Taken with good sharpness and colours to show the features of this head and upper body of this male against a pleasing BG.
They only rarely come to gardens in my part of the world and only in the winter, so I shall never have the chance to take a shot like this!
Thanks and have a good weekend,

A very good close up, good collours and good composition. With all the postprocessing we can see this lens is not a good choice.
