Goldfinch on Thistle

By philwhynd  
Taken here at the farm on Friday.
Although not good farming practice, I leave a lot of weeds growing in strategic areas around the farm, and this photo is one of the benefits!

A classic capture of one of our more colourful birds set off well against a natural background.

May not be good farming practice Phil, but it is certainly good conservation practice!

The promotion of wildlife 'corridors' is widely encouraged down this end of the country.

Well done and well caught.
