CommentA lifer for me and very happy to find a European Goldfinch (meeting the species requirement for this theme) from a hide - quick moving and tricky to catch well but light was on my side here. I like the way the bird is lit to give a very clear, sharp eye and head. The reedy bokeh I find attractive and the pose good allowing the feet to be shown well. It is a very rare sighting in Canberra which makes me even more satisfied with this capture.
