Goldfinches in the garden

Spring always brings great promises of photo opportunities and nature experiences in general. The last few days have seen up to 13 goldfinches foraging in the neighbourhood, not least around my sunflower seed feeding platform…

I’d much rather shoot goldfinches on rapeseed flowers, but until I get that opportunity I don’t mind filling my memory cards with images like these – goldfinches are some of my favourite birds.
