Lifting off any second now - Cock greenfinch (carduelis chloris)
I was hoping to get a decent portrait of a cock greenfinch as the sun went down at a good angle for this favoured perch. He took off a millisecond after I snapped this. Photographed in Buckinghamshire, England. More at "Colin Pacitti Wildlife Photography & Fishing Travels" - www.colin-pacitti.com.
