Wow, what can I say? Such a small little birdie - such a huge capture. This one lies at a good level on the cuteness factor scale.
Lovely composition, brilliant colours, great details, a well removed BG with OOF area that compliments the finch very well, and perfect exposure that rendered lovely contrasts on the whites and darker areas of the bird. The only small nit might be the little rings on the leg, but you did say it was taken in a zoo environment so probably it is better you left the photo untouched.
Great work and TFS.

What a beautifull bird, never seen it before. I love the colours. The BG and POV are great, but I agree with Loot about the little rings.

Amo a estas aves, recuerdo que he tenido como mascotas especímenes muy similares cuando era pequeño.
Bella imagen Chris con buenos detalles, gracias a un apropiado DOF y foco.
Me gusta la elección del encuadre con buena difusión del fondo de la escena.
Intensos y naturales colores, sin saturarlos innecesariamente.
Gracias y saludos... Ricardo
I love these birds, I remember that I have had as mascots very similar specimens when I was child.
Beautiful image Chris with good details, due to an appropriate DOF and focus.
I like the election of the framing with good diffusion of the bottom of the scene.
Intense and natural colors, without saturating them unnecessarily.
Thank you and greetings... Ricardo

I live these Finch. I always visit the free flight aviary at Auckland Zoo as they have many of the sweet wee guys. You have done a great job here. Nice catchlight in the eye too. TFS.

Great shoot, well focused, nice DoF, great sharpness and neat BG. Composition-wise, IMHO, it was cropped to tight at lower and right parts.

What a superb little bird! Is it a bit camera shy or what happened, because she blushed a little :))
I'm just kidding...i remember these birds well - my uncle gave me a pair for Christmas when i was about 5 years old :)
Beautiful and very colorful little birds, features you managed to capture here very well.
Also the POV is great, the details are very nice and sharp and the lighting is excellently managed.
Very well done!
Bravo and TFS
