GoldFinchDay

Today I had around 15 finches around the feeder. Fortunately I have a couple trees, a porch and rain protection because I needed all three. The birds didn't seem to mind the weather and I was better prepared. :-) They sure are pretty birds.

These are all with my 400mm and heavily cropped. It is a cheap inexpensive and older Tokina, so they are all a bit soft. I need a proper blind to get closer to these little joules!





Visit Mellow Yellow Monday for more yellow!
