Very nice shots of the finches; bathed in warm ember light. It looks a tad serious.

They are very pretty birds, I agree, and I always know when they have arrived when they cal to one another.

Thank you Eileen::) These have been around for six months perhaps longer but I first noticed them in July last year.

Seijastiina
Thank you, I was very pleased with the first photo because I caught it in a more natural setting.

NickMorgan
Thank you Nick!:) The all important light has been missing here also,it's raining buckets,:::hail too.These photos where taken in November last year, but the finches come to the garden every day.

Breathtaking said...

Chris Rohrer
Thank you Chris!:)Sometimes it's genuinely difficult to tell if they are green or yellow. It depends on the light I guess, but green or yellow they are still a joy to see.

Bob Bushell

For some strange reason I can't make a comment on your blog. I will keep trying however until I can.

They do appear more yellow than green sometimes. I'm happy with my camera Maria.These shots were taken with my Sony.

Hope to see you soon.:)

Hi Len!

Good morning Elsie!:)

Thank you for stopping by and thank you for your nice comment. The Greenfinch always seem to look a bit grumpy.:)

Hello Chusa!:)

A pretty bird, to brighten a grey winter day.

Spring seems very far away at the moment with all the storms we have been having. I wish the rain would stop so I can get outside.
Kisses right back to you.

Hi! Thank you!:)It was a treat for me to see your photos of finches, as I don't see them here.

It will be a pleasure to follow your blog.

Hi Sonjia!

Rather curious that its name does not match its colours, what in the end doesn´t do any harm to its looks...
Here we call it "a verdelhão", I think.

Lovely photos.
Have a good weekend.

Rita Vaselli said...

A pleasant harmony of golden colors .... I hope that January is mild and bright, in your garden, as it seems in these beautiful pictures!
Difficult for a painter ,here where I live now a lot of days are grey , with rain and fog! Kisses and hugs, Rita.

Joke (Jokes Camera) said...

This is really a gorgeous series, Sonjia. The colors are fantastic too. All the birds here are gone. It is too warm for the winter. The birdfood is untouched in my garden. Too bad. Have a great weekend. Greetings from the Netherlands, Joke

Sonia Aguiar said...

Querida Sonjia :) es una serie de fotos magnífica. El colorido de este pájaro es muy llamativo. Mis felicitaciones.
Un cariñoso abrazo, Sonia.

Bob Bushell said...

Nice Finch, I love 'em.

Breathtaking said...

Rita Vaselli
These photos were taken in Oct last year when we had sunny weather. Unfortunately our weather has been like yours, not too cold, but rainy and grey, but the worst for me is the rain which never stops.I haven't taken any photos since November,but have many saved posts for my blog.
I hope your weather improves soon Rita dear.
Hugs and Kisses

Breathtaking said...

Joke (Jokes Camera)

Thank you Joke!:) Sorry to hear about the lack of birds at your feeders.I hope this does not mean you will have a harsh winter when it finally arrives.

Breathtaking said...

Sonia Aguiar
Thank you so much. I know that we are moved by colour. I was really pleased with the warm colours in this photo, and the vivid yellow/green of the Greenfinch.
Warm Hugs.

I like them too, at least I like to see them, and admire their lovely colour, but hey bully the other birds though, and are very greedy at the feeders.
