Hello Jane,
Beautiful shot of the yellow Goldfinch enjoying the sunshine! Sharp details and I like his proud pose. Looks really good against the blue sky. Well done!
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Nice shot, not so sharp but good.

Delightful! and you've caught it in mid-song too!
Lovely PoV and colours
(and thanks for critiquing my "Frosted Feathers")

Hello Jane,
The blue sky does make a fine BG for bird pictures.
This cute little Finch looks lovely with its very attractive plumage.
Thanks for sharing this image.

bonjour jane
une petite partie surexposée dans le jaune de l'oiseau mais a part cela c'est assez reussi avec un bon POV.

Hello Jane,
This is a fine straight forward capture of the male Lesser Goldfinch. This is pretty sharp and I find the bolt upright stance slightly amusing. Nice lighting from the side.
We borrorrowed a bit of your clear blue skies these last couple of days!
TFS and all the best,

Bonsoir Jane!
Quelles merveilleuses couleurs pour ce joli petit oiseau ! Excellents détails, très belle présentation et joli POV. J'aime vraiment beaucoup cette image.
Merci et au revoir...JP
