Male Lesser Goldfinch sitting among pink flowers and seemingly posing for the camera!
Week 13: Finches & Friends
Posing for the camera!
Simple and stunning!
Now that’s one handsome Finch.
So pretty and untouched!
A truly beautiful picture.
One of my favorites of yours! Love it.
Ah, Spring! (speaking from Chicago)
I love the composition of the finch within the branches and especially the contrast between the pink of the flowers and the yellow of the finch’s breast. Way to go Vivian!
Love Gramma K
What makes this a commanding image is the slight misfocus of the petals at the edges of the image and the delineation of the center of the picture that is so crisp that one can almost see individual feathers! The turned head and watchful eye makes this very eye appealing.
love the contrast of colors
That’s one handsome goldfinch who seems to know how special he is and that pink flowers are just perfect to show off his good looks! Lovely photo with nice colors. It’s spring!! Hopefully soon. Great job. Nancy
Avril says what a wonderful combination of beautiful flowers with a beautiful
goldfinch. Well done !!
I absolutely adore the juxtaposition of the flashy yellow and the pale pink flowers! You have my vote!
