Passerines -

It is May 2013 and ....the Goldfinches are back !

This image was shot through window glass.

I am excitied about it because these Goldfinches arrived at this feeder seconds before I captured this. And they have been gone since Fall 2011.

But the thing that really excites me is that I did not have to stay back motionlessly inside the room to shoot them. I learned after several shots that they would allow me to walk right up to the window, stand in my full frame in front of them (less than 5 feet away) and shoot this image.

It was just 2 days ago that I re-established this feeder in its 2011 location, outside my photo room.
