This is one of the best Goldfinch pics I have seen that has been captured in its natural surroundings. The mood, lighting and colors are all number one. Well done Yves

Thank you Clifford. I'd say shooting birds is more hazardous than scenery and landscape. Of course, the skill is important, the experience counts, but a really nice shot needs a big part of luck. It reminds me everytime that Life is on my side.

Such a pleasure to spot one of these Yves. Stunning capture

Yves Langlois

Thank you for the comment Jenny.

Heather Mellon

An outstanding portrait of this beauty Yves. The background greenery sets him off perfectly and you caught him in the perfect pose. One of your best and well worth framing too, I'd say..

Yves Langlois

Your nice comments are very appreciated Heather. As a photographer I am getting better but I still don't control the richness of the colors. That one shot is still a gift from Mother Nature and it is OK for me that way.

Debra Plett

Wonderful composition and focus Yves, I love the soft yellow feathers against the green background. Great job capturing this cute bird in his element.

Yves Langlois

Thank you so much for the comments. I followed the bird for few shots, here and there in the bushes. Finaly got that one with the right sunlight, a nice pose and no branches in front.

The sun was right, the distance was perfect and I was in the mood. Certainly my best goldfinch in the wild. Taken at the Island of the marsh in Katevale.
