This impressive image looks much more like an Roger Tory Peterson illustration found in his field guides.
Fanstatic job! Wish I could give more than 2 points.

Lovely capture, Serge.
The plummage details are sharp and there is a fine catchlight in the bird's eye. In fact, she apeears to be posing for you!
I like the nice, off-centre composition with the images set against a very unobtrusive b/g.
The redpolls disappear from our garden in winter and migrate south. However, they are very welcome visitors during the spring and summer. The females can be very agressive towards other birds on the feeders!
Have a good day,

Nice framing of this little fellow!
Good details in the plumage,
and the coloured patch on the wing really stands out...
A pleasant composition and good eye contact with the bird!

Great work Serge, and I agree that it is nicer to capture them in a tree vs. a feeder setting. The effect of the light/bright background does wonders for the plumage and colors. Very nice, TFS.
