Photo of the European Goldfinch bird; Now this is one of the birds I've been struggling to capture for some time now though local to the area. However now that she knows there is a a restaurant in the area I certainly hope she's a repeat visitor - unless of course food quality is not up to standard :-) The bird is of the finch family that is native to Europe, North Africa and western Asia. Males and females are very similar, but females have a slightly smaller red area on the face. I absolutely love the colours/patterns of the bird along with the face mask; more to come as I've captured quite a few photo's. As usual I applied my signature style texture editing. Hope you enjoy it!
