Wonderful close up look at this beautiful little finch!

Beautiful. I love the details (and the big mouth, I mean beak). :)

Faye said...

Makes me happy to see the birds enjoying the food I put out for them--and to be able to get nice close shots--as you did here--of them with a mouth full. So, are you feeding this winter? Any particular combo of bird seed?

Connie Smiley said...

Fantastic shot, Brian!

Amy Burzese said...

Great shot. We have had so many of these the last couple of weeks.
