Grumpy Greenfinch

This image is here because I adore that default expression of a distinctive scowl, which lends the Greenfinch such presence. It seems to fit so well with a bird which, although generally happy to rub along with others, also never seems too far away from starting a squabble.

PS: Just realised I had posted this earlier; this is a different crop, which I prefer.

  1. Beautifully subtle colouring on the plumage; I do like this species.
