[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Le Chardonneret jaune :

* se nourrit d’une manière frénétique aux mangeoires avant une tempête
* mâle nourrit sa compagne lorsqu’elle couve les oeufs, comme s’il s’agissait d’une jeune
* mâle aide parfois la femelle à trouver des matériaux pour construire le nid, mais c’est la femelle qui s’occupe de la construction comme tel
* est le seul oiseau de son genre à acquérir son plumage nuptial à la suite de la mue (le changement de plumage)

Sometimes when i open your photos, I am just "blown away!" This one has such a 3-d effect. I feel like I could reach out and touch him...but I wouldn't want him to fly into my room! : )
Just perfect.

Evelynn : )

Hi Joseph

Another splendid capture from you!
The details and colors on this goldfinch are simply superb and well visible that they make the bird stand out so well from this composition!
The light is also great and it gives a good saturation to the tones, the DOF is impeccable and the POV is excellent.
Very nicly framed and composed, too.

Bravo and TFS
