Hello friends, here it is the
beautiful American Goldfinch.
It is flying from the tree
branch to the bird feeder.

Photo shot with my tough camera
1/500s f/5.6 ISO100
12.6mm (35mm eq:70mm)

from the All About Birds website

« American Goldfinches are the only
finch that molts its body feathers twice
a year, once in late winter and again in
late summer. The brightening yellow of male
goldfinches each spring is one welcome mark
of approaching warm months.

Goldfinches are among the strictest
vegetarians in the bird world, selecting
an entirely vegetable diet and only
inadvertently swallowing an occasional insect. »

Hello Asbed,
A very fine in-flight of the American Goldfinch. The wing and tail spreads are great, the POV is very good and the clarity superb in a very nice composition with the bare trees in the BG.
Thanks and best regards,

Hi Asbed,
Beautifully composed, quite pleasant shot. This time the "motion blur" is great, too. Like it.
Best regards, László
