A Goldfinch (Carduelis carduelis) taken in the garden yesterday. Perching on a yellow ornamental yew shrub against the pink spring foliage background of a Japanese Acer.
Thank you all for the great response to my Spring Robin and a big thank you to Pete for the HC. Very much appreciated Smile

Cracking capture Sylvia and pose again set against that Acer. Might have just worked on the background at the top though to make it completely uniform and remove th egreenish part

A very good shot of the Goldfinch Sylvia. Lovely plumage detail and fine perch. Have to say I am glad you did not remove the green patch. To my mind it makes the BG look far more natural than so many of the 'all in' and bland ones that we see looking almost as if they were taken in a studio.

A first class image Syliva, such splendid colours and pin sharp detail in the plumage and a background to die for
