Goldfinch

By FeatherFriend
Hi all, a Goldfinch in a natural setting at Upton warren, it was supposed to be a Kingfisher but they didn't show, apparently the second brood which I mentioned earlier didn't survive due to the banks being flooded during the recent heavy rainfall there, such a shame Sad
Many thanks for taking time out to view and comment on my Ki ngfisher 4 , I really do appreciate and value the support,
Regards,
Geoff.

A lovely shot with the bird captured in an attractive pose, in as you say a natural setting and under soft lighting which allows detail in every part to show up so well.
I feel we often cry out for strong sunlight, but many subjects such as your's today come off better under a more subdued sky: I think this applies to trees in their autumn finery too.

Great shot with sharp detail in the plumage Geoff.
I went to Upton Warren 2 weeks ago, all I got was wet feet - lol.

Lovely classic Goldfinch Geoff. What a pleasure to see a bird in a naturalistic setting with corrext BG instead of the cold and clinical type we see so often. Deserves an award.

I didn't get there until 4pm Derek, the sky was very overcast by this time and came away at 4.50pm due to the rain, however there was a guy who had sat in the hide from 9am and all he got was the Goldie too, going again on family business next week and hope the light's better Wink
