The Goldfinch (carduelis carduelis)
Like so many people I seem to be having to look back a bit for shots to post. This is from a while back when I managed to get a Goldfinch perched on a Teasel whilst it was raining. I am sure you will have spotted the rain streaks on the BG and the odd spot of water on the bird.
A beautiful bird which I like very much and I hope you will find some pleasure in it.
My very very grateful and appreciative thanks for the colossal response to 'OOP's' and particular thanks to John (lonely oryx) and Ken (franken) for the iciing on the cake with the UA's.
