I also recommend the shutter release Lou, excellent exposed capture, these are hard to expose to get a clear eye, well done excellent capture all around.

I do so admire the Goldfinch Louise. They are such pretty wee birds. I was pleased to hear that ( after so much gloom and doom ) that these birds are being seen more and more in gardens in the last survey. Bit of good news for once. This is a super capture with a great BG and the bird nicely placed in the frame.
