    Awesome photo - as woodsac said extremely clear and defined. I was just wondering how far away you were when you took this shot and what lens you were using?

    Beautiful shot! I'd like to know your lens type, as well. Perfect exposure, great DOF here. :thumbup:

    Do you think this could be a female, which would explain the muted colors? Or are the females mostly brown?

    A pleasure to view. :D

    All of these shots were taken with a Canon 100-400mm
    lens and at pretty close range, some not full zoom.

    While the female looks something like this, Goldfinch colors
    mute in wintertime. This one is still changing. In summer
    the males have a black mark atop their head. It runs from
    their bill over their eye to about the center of their head.
    You can still see some of that color on this bird. Also the
    white color of their underside is a sign of winter coloring.

    Thanks for the comments and questions

    Bill
