Superb detail and colours of the bird.
The branch with the flowers is icing on the cake.
Well taken.
My sister has some of these in her garden, must get up there to take some I think.

A this is a stunner - made a cut above by the diagonal composition of the blossom - excellent.

Would be better without the text though.

Another stunning image, Superb composition, I love the framing blossom, Great colour and detail.

Shaun this is a cracking shot the detail on the finch is superb and then the added bonus of the blossom - perfect Ina
Hey Dad, i reslly like this, lovely capture and i like the natural blossom frame. I do feel, however, that the Goldfinch text is alittle of the large size as slightly detracts from the overall impact of the image. Sorry, nice presentation though, would have liked it a tad smaller. Fab capture, Melissa xxx Smile
Lovely composition.

A beautiful shot Shaun, lovely detail/pose and the perch is wonderful, one of your best so far I would say, I do agree the text would look better smaller and in the frame rather than on the image though, not a criticism, merely a personal preference.
