Fine image of a Redpoll and dedicated to Jane with warmth, Rick.
I notice you have dug the image up from your last year's shoot. It is a marvellous capture you kept hiding from us.
Thanks for showing it eventually.

I have to yet shown this to Jane...we just awoke..I have to admit you brought a tear or two to this old geezers eye...You read a lot into some of the things I have done..and ya know what? You're right in many was...Even though I could never do full time work other than photography, it gave my kids a two parent family...which is unusual...and that became our major job in life...we raised kids...that's what we did...God Bless you... I shall now go get Jane.

Fine dedication to Jane, Rick and a gorgeous shot of this Finch. The pose and colors are really fine. Also nicely composed with a pleasing BG. A bit of sharpening would benifit IMO. Tfs this my freind. Hope you have a great weekend. Richard

A wonderful dedication to Bob's wife, Jane. I too feel that I know her - just as I feel I know Lucy. This Redpoll is posing so nicely for you. Lovely natural colors and good details of the face and plummage. It's not common to me - I have never seen one.

You captured him very well, the details in the plumage and the colors are fabulous.

Superb photography and a lovely dedication. Every tiny detail is just great. The variation of colours of the feathers is really eye-catching. I love the pose of the bird, looking backwards. Details are razor sharp and colours wonderful. The bird has such a cute little yellow beak. A fine composition, perfectly framed into a lovely presentation. Congratulations and well done on this posting of a classy little bird. Thanks for sharing.

Very nice dedication!!
I really like the angle you're presenting this common redpoll.
You've used the branch so well in putting it in diagonale.
Great colours with good details in the feathers!
