    Another Pine Siskin from a week ago in same local grassland as previous post. Interesting to see the varying degrees of yellow feather intensity. C&C welcome.


    D500, 500mm PF + 1.4 TC, 1/ 1000s, Handheld, f/8.0, ISO1250.

    Great pose and perch, good HA. A lot of yellow on this guy. BG maybe a little busy but shows the environment well.

    The teasels, if that's what they are, frame the bird perfectly. And the pose is very nice. I wish that the near wing were properly folded as that would have eliminated the displaced feathers above the near-leg ...

    This is supposed to be a huge invasion winer for this species, so you'll probably have lots of chances with this species in the upcoming months! This is a nice look at this guy. He's very colorful as siskins go and the head angle is perfect.
    Surroundings are a bit busy but give us a sense for the habitat. Details on bird look pretty good but the breast needs to be tamed; it's hot as is.
