[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
hello freinds, not having done new photos
here is another one of my winter 2009 archives

from All About Birds website :


« House Finches are small-bodied finches with fairly
large beaks and somewhat long, flat heads. The wings
are short, making the tail seem long by comparison.
Many finches have distinctly notched tails, but the
House Finch has a relatively shallow notch in its tail.

The total House Finch population across
North America is staggering. Scientists estimate
between 267 million and 1.4 billion individuals. »

Hi Asbed,

Winter looks good to me - no matter what the calender says it is still summer here. The face of this House Finch is magnificent with wonderful details and colors. I love the position of the wings. He shows up so well against the bare branches and blue skies.

Hi Asbed. Once again i fine picture of the House Finch in flight. Good timing on your part and taken with fine detai land natural colours. well done TFS.

Hola Asbed,
Una foto muy bonita como la mayoría de las que subes, una buena técnica para poder conseguir que los pájaro no te salgan movidos.
Salutacions cordials. Ferran.

bonjour Asbed
une autre photo superbement bien detaillée, on peut même voir son oeil pétillant
les couleurs de l'oiseau et du ciel sont très bien reproduite et très naturelle
Belle composition
Passe une bonne nuit

Bonjour Asbed,

Une belle capture de ce roselin familier en vol, elle permet de voir les détails et les coul;eurs de l'oiseau. Les branches cadrent bien l'oiseau. Ce ciel bleu envoie une lumière qui mey en valeur les couleurs de l'image. Bon weekend.


Hi Asbrd
A stunning photo emphasizing Winter...Superb color and detail...TFS

Hi Asbed,
this is a good photo of that nicely coloured finch in flight as you have captured it with a fast 1/2000th second exposure.I sure would like to know what iso was used as the photo looks grainy in places but I do like the light and the colour very much.Asbed you have become TN's resident in flight specialist and that is no mean feat as in flight shots can be difficult.Thanks for sharing.
