    I haven't seen a Goldfinch for two days now so I suppose they have moved on. I enjoyed it while it lasted. Here are a few samplings from a couple of days ago.

    They are constantly looking towards the sky. I'm sure they look mighty tasty to a hawk! :eek:

    I have a whole series of this bird putting this web? in its mouth then wiping it off and picking it up again. Not sure what it was doing?

    I was setup for larger birds when these two decided to land on the same limb. The Chipping Sparrow got chewed out and left in a hurry.

    Just enjoying the sunshine.

    Lovely Andy. I haven't seen any G-F's since the weekend either. I hope that they are still around, but like you, I have my doubts. :rolleyes:
     
  6. Such nice detail fine work!

    I thought this was going to be a thread about overpriced flash diffusers...

    Nice bird shots though!

    Fantastic series! The colors and detail are excellent. I really like that 1st one.
     
  11. Gorgeous photos! I've seen more goldfinches than usual here this spring...of course they disappear every time I run for the camera. The funny thing is, my daughter can play noisily just a few feet away from them, and they don't mind a bit. The minute I grab the camera though, they're off!

    Thank you Gary.

    Very high praise and I really appreciate it.

    Yes they are. Still don't know what she was doing?

    Yes, I think they have all went to Debbie's house.:wink:

    Thanks for looking.

    Thanks Crystal! I can't wait to see your photos of these beauties!

    :biggrin:

    Thank you.

    Thanks Sharon!

    Thanks Sommer. I know what you mean about the noise. I have a fifteen year old son and he and his buddies can wake the dead.
