Real Gold In This One

I thought I’d share this frame with you since, besides the lovely subject, it has such a nice and simple play of colors.

The bird is an American Goldfinch male displaying its breeding plumage. Significantly different than its winter plumage, male’s breeding plumage is much more colorful and vibrant [Note to myself: Choose more colorful clothes]. The goldfinch sings beautifully and has a very suitable French name as well: “Chardonneret Jaune” [Second note to myself: Establish chic French alias].

Part of the Birds In My Backyard, where you don’t need to drive far away for good photographic subjects.
