Garden Beauty

By Maiwand
The Goldfinch (carduelis carduelis)
Apologies for not being as active on the site as I would have liked to be but personal matters have been demanding most of my time at present. Hopefully they will be soved before too long but until then I will just have to visit when I get the chance.
I have not had the opportunity to get out of late so, as the title implies, this is a garden shot from further back in the files.
Thanks so very much indeed for all the c/c's on the Greenfinch; with particular thanks to Jennn (taggart) Neil (Neil Wigan) and Ray ( Ray 42) for their User Awards.
Ron

Such a crisp shot and with the bird standing out so well from the b/g tones, Ron.
Excellent detail in the plumage and the colours very naturally recorded.

Good to see you posting Ron

You have to do, whatever is required and I am sure EPZ is way down the list of priorities

Please keep in touch, especially when the occasional post is a good 'unSmile

I like the diagonal on the perch Ron and you have done very well at such a slow shutter speed. Might have cleaned it up down the right hand side to have the background canvas the same throughout to compliment a fine Goldy
See you soon
