Gouldian Finch Poses 1 - Vancouver, British Columbia (Explored)

Gouldian Finch Poses 1 - Vancouver, British Columbia (Explored)
This is a photo of a male Gouldian finch that I took in low light conditions on a recent trip to Vancouver's Bloedel Conservatory. For those who may not be familiar with the conservatory, it is a large dome enclosed area with a carefully controlled humid and tropical environment. The conservatory supports a large assortment of tropical flowers, trees, and birds. Within the enclosed area, the birds roam freely, eat, nest, and reproduce. One of my favourites at the Bloedele is the Gouldian finch. These finches come in various colors: red and black heads, purple, mauve, and white breasts. This beautiful bird was kind enough to pose for me. :) The photo was taken in August 2013, with my trusty Olympus digital camera. Enjoy.

Gorgeous photo. I always enjoy it when a photographer gives some information about their photo. The Bloedel Conservatory sounds like it's worth a visit. We have a Bloedel Reserve here on Bainbridge Island in Washington state. I wonder if they are connected? Thanks for sharing such a beautiful bird that I had never seen until now.
