An American Goldfinch (Carduelis Tristis, 13cm). I'm not sure if it's a male in winter plumage or a female though. Anyone? They're back in my garden and I'm glad. Welcome back little friends ! :-)

Hi Mario,

This is a beautiful shot of what I am almost sure is a female goldfinch. The pose, colors, details, BG are all perfect. Absolutely lovely.

Hi Mario

I see you've come back with a lot of wonderful photos :)
This too is a terrific catch, with a splendi bird and a nice and interesting contrasting BG behind it.
The colors and sharpness on the goldfinch are superb and very clear and the side POV is excellent.
Also great are the exposure and the composition.
Very good work!

Bravo and TFS

Bonjour Mario
Magnifique photo de ce petit chardonneret jaune. Composition, netteté et couleurs sont excellentes. Tu as su isoler ton sujet sur un arrière-plan foncé et qui lui rend bien ses couleurs..
Bravo et au revoir...JP
Les sourires demain
