Hello CM,

Hope you are well dear friend.Happy New Year once again to you. Like that previous gull photo of yours, this one of the Eurasian Goldfinch is a marvelous shot as well. It is definitely on this dried plant for the seeds one of which I clearly see in its beak in the bright sunlight, it is a brilliant shot of high quality.Thanks a lot for sharing, take care.

warm regards / Abid

One from your archives, but even if some years old it is already a great one. The European Goldfinch is a good model! Love the fine green background too.

Hi Christodoulos,
Very nice shot of a beautiful bird. Excellent sharpness details and amazing colors.
Regards Jiri.

Beautiful Goldfinch in a sea of ​​thorns, you've accomplished a great composition, Chris and luxurious approach. A big hug.


Hi Chris,
Fabulous image as always from you. Excellent sharpness and depth of field, color-wise probably with a slight blue overcast - but otherwise a stunner without doubt. Hopefully you return to TN soon to share such wonderful photos as this one.
Best regards, László
