Goldfinch (Carduelis carduelis)

A beauty of a day, no kidding. It was sunny, sunny sunny, but it was blowing hard wind. Never mind, we had a good time, for a change.

  3. Śliczne ptaki i pomysłowy karmnik. Każdy ptak ma swoją "dziurkę". Pozdrawiam.
    Cute and clever bird feeder. Each bird has a "hole". Yours.

  23. Thanks Bob...I am lucky to have an insurance for stupid things so I have to pay SEK 1.500 if its totally damaged.
    But 60D is an expensiv camera and we ordered it from UK cheaper only EU 700 than in Sweden EU 1100.
    But the insurance wants to know before they pay me

  38. Lovely photos of one of our most colourful little birds. They visit my garden every day for the sunflower seeds and the niger seed and they always look beautiful even on the dullest of days.....Maybe you crept into my garden and took those photos when I wasn't looking ;-)
