    This is a bit special Jonathan. Great pose and head turn Lovely clean background. The perch and blossom really add to the image. The bird is beautiful with lovely colours and good feather detail. These really are lovely birds and I am yet to catch one as good as this. TFS

    Beautiful frame. Love the pose on the bird and that flowers on the perch. Your goldfinch looks nothing like the american. Very neat looking bird.

    Beautiful overall. I really like the delicate branch, so much so that I wish there was more in the extreme upper left corner with some of those flowers. IQ looks great.
