Goldfinch Friend

Can I tell you how much I love the goldfinch? I do! These photos were taken while I was sitting on the deck of our log cabin - not too far from this little guy. He was on the thistle feeder for close to 15 minutes but I think the best photos I captured of him on this day was when he was off the feeder. He seemed to glisten in the sun.

Beautiful they are - I still have to take my 1st picture of one, though I saw one from afar! But seeing them like you show them, makes up for it for now! Cheers, Klaus

Yes, he does glisten, doesn't he? I love goldfinches too. Their changing color affirms the arrival of spring every year. Nice shots.

They really are beautiful. I enjoy seeing them around, too. They don't usually come in very close to my house, but sometimes I see little flashes of yellow zoom by my windows. Wonderful pictures, Shelley.
