goldfinch taken earlier today - beautiful but noisy little birds and we have around 30 that come in and out of the garden all day long. Have been trying out a shutter release today...jury still out on it at the moment!

Thanks for the C&C's on my last upload.

Enjoy whats left of your weekend,

Take care, Lou

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.
