Another one from the flock of Goldfinches that visit the garden. Certain they have had a second brood and we now have up to about 50 visiting - costing me a small fortune in sunflower hearts & nyger seed!!
Thanks for the votes & comments on yesterdays Robin - much appreciated as always but special thanks have to go to Fred (Badgerfred) for his generous UA. Thank you so very much Fred.

Take care, Lou

A perfect pose, Lou, and the perfect background for this beautiful little bird, very well captured. Carol

I used to have a whole flock too Lou, but most of them have disappeared Sad. Is this from your hide then? Certainly a close clear shot. Moira

We too had continual visits from a mob some while back but I have not seen them for some while. This is a lovely shot and a reminder of how beautiful the bird is.
