A fine Goldfinch, Lillian. Have a super Christmas, and a wonderful New Year. Thanks for the great ‘funnies’ shared round this last year, they made a lot of folk laugh 😀

Guest editor: I'm a fan of Goldfinches - albeit I have never managed to photograph one. Here the composition is rather clever - the goldfinch is small within the left most third of the image - the rest of the space being left for the frosty branch and beautifully rendered background. The birds position could be considered to be just a tad too far left (I would have likely composed it to be sitting on a third), but the composition works marvellously as is and I think this is largely down to the less conventional positioning. The direct of the birds gaze is spot on as is the direct of the beak - leading the viewer across the frame. Sharpness is essential in an image like this and here it is spot on. Well done Lillian and Merry Christmas.
