Not a super close-up, but I rather like the snowy context, and how the colours of a Goldfinch come out.

P.S. Trying to use the URL within the "Insert Image" BB applet to display the image as well as a link - just getting a red-x box. Any suggestions?

In Flickr, select the view you want(I did Medium 800) then right click on the image and copy URL.
Here, type

IMAGE NOT FOUND
IMAGE IS A REDIRECT OR MISSING!

. You can also Go Advanced and preview.

Nice shot BTW, welcome to POTN.

Actually, its better to select Copy BB Codes rather than copy url. Then you just paste the text right inline with your post. You won't need to use the insert image button at all.

Very nice shot. Its hard to capture such a small bird in flight.

I love the different colours that the European Gold Finch has compared to the ones here.

Thanks everyone for your help - I've got the idea now with the BBcodes, and have updated my first post.

The second larger shot works much better, I like the overall look too, grand job!
