Goldfinch on wire fence

I usually pass on these types of images but I liked the pattern of the fence with the lone bird.
I removed a zinnia that was sticking up in the lower left corner.

Any comments appreciated.

I like this image and I think your placement of the bird is great. I would rotate the image to get the fence horizontal and vertical.

Here’s a quick adjustment.

Keith beat me to the straightening, Allen. I like this one. The fence pattern works well and it’s the kind of place they love to perch. I have some of the flower gardens fenced for deer and there can be a dozen Goldfinches perched on them. This gentleman is in very fine condition for this time of year. Most of the males around here are looking very decrepit.

Thanks Keith, Dennis, yes I forgot to straighten. Thanks for the rework Keith.
