I can feel it with you Ulla! Same here and around the northern hemisphere. I wonder if this beauty was prepared? Perhaps it's beauty hides as well an inner stoic strength.

After having seen Jane's Goldfinch, it is a pleasure to see a different Goldfinch from you, Ulla. This one so very cute!
Great shot with your SX10. I went for SX120 recently, but yet to try it fully.
The light BG behind the bird formed by a snow-covered roof actually adds to the beauty of this image.
Thanks and regards.

Today we have almost only tits from Europa. The goldfinch is colourful winter bird and look on your photo very nice.
Hello Ulla, Beautiful shot of this cute and poor goldfinch under snowing with lovely pose.
TFS and regards,
Technically not a bad image in my opinion, when consider the use of the little Powershot here, dear Ulla. Good point of view. 1/80s seems fast enough to freeze the bird and slow enough to record the snow's movement in the air. Bravo, a good image with fine quality which deserve respect.

Beautiful photo of this Goldfinch in bad weather. After a week of snow, the thaw is setting in here.
Great pose, POV, sharpness and composition.

To do this with ISO 100 and 1/80s, you have to know and manage very well your camera! Congratulations! An other beautiful photo that conveys very well the environmental conditions! brrrrr..... poor bird! :)

Hola Sra. Ulla.
Verdaderamente siento tristesa al ver a estos hermosos pajarillos en un medio ambiente tan hostil, buscando su comida diaria, sin embargo asi es la vida.
Aqui aun no hace tanto frio
Bella foto. Muy buen manejo de la camara para lograr esta foto desde adento de su casa.

Has adelantado la felicitación de Navidad Ulla !
Un toma de gran delicadeza y que inspira a la vez que te hace pensar,
por lo que es una toma con mucha fuerza. Bien equilibrada.
Un abrazo: Josep Ignasi.

WOW ! captured through the window and the image
quality it is very high, i love to see the snow
coming down on the background, photo shot with
very fine POV and framing, superbly focused
(through the window) with excellent sharpness
and details, the catch-light render the photo
always more beautiful, TFS

Your image of this beautiful goldfinch sure portrays the cold and snow that seems to be fairly wide spread in the northern hemisphere. Small birds and their ability to survive in this weather has always impressed me, as does this photo, thank you.

Good details Ulla, love the driven snow falling through your frame.
Nice head turn & catch-light too, it's a beautiful bird :)
A fine, fluffy individual, which seems naturally isolated from that terrible looking snowstorm Ulla, your semi-frontal capture demonstrates the discomfort of the bird to a degree while providing us with salient details of it. TFS indeed!

Très belle publication valorisant bien le sujet par sa bonne opposition sur l'arrière-plan.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

What a cute capture! Your photo was taken is difficult light conditions, with snow falling and you managed a very nice shot. Nice natural frame created by the trees. Very natural colours. The European Goldfinch is rare in Belgium: you are lucky to see it! Good night,

what a pathetic finch! Perching right on the small twig that resembles of an open palm.
Well seen and I think she is well cuddled too.
A nice composition ans pretty colours is well exhibited.
The effect of the snow on the capture makes this view artistic and abstract.
