The Goldfinch ( carduelis carduelis )
Thought it was about time that this little beastie had a showing. These are superbly plumaged birds and I can never make up my mind whether this one or the Kingfisher is the most eyecatching. Both are among the most attractive of our native birds IMHO.
I hope you will find something about it to enjoy. Large view will be worth your time.

Thank you once again for all the views/comments and votes for the Mallard. Most rewarding.

Superb capture and composition Ron - this is a real beauty. Pin sharp detail, wonderful pose and plumage patterning/colours and great bg tones. Love the sharp textures of the perch.
