Very nicely posed, Bob, and standing out well in that setting.
 
All I see is rain, lol. I haven't seen my American Finches in a couple of days. This one is looking real sharp in that bright yellow plumage with black markings.
 
Some wonderful colours and lighting to show off this beauty Robert. Brilliant, well done.
