    I have been trying very hard to get one of these. Unfortunately, my attempts to capture one on a treelimb or other natural setting has proven useless so far. BIF has been even worse.

    Nearly a 100% crop. Their yellow color is so vivid and reflective, I have a difficult time not blowing out the yellow. This is one of the better examples, but still with some lost highlights.




    Another Finch but unsure of species. Quite possibly a female.

    100% crop. I think.

    Yeah, nice! I would remove that black line on the top one - assuming it isn't feathers of course.

    Exposure compensation is your friend. ;)
