We had a great time last March exploring the natural areas around San Diego for the first time. This handsome fellow was certainly one of the highlights of the trip. Eagerly looking forward to returning next spring.

All your comments and suggestion are very much appreciated

Superb shot Ken. Nailed the pose, eye contact and composition. The perch, with those water drops add a nice zest to the image. Well done.
Make your life spectacular!

Beautiful shot of the Goldfinch which is certainly enhanced by a wonderful perch. Terrific details.
