_MG_8729 You called?

Yesterday, I cut back some overgrown cleomes surrounding these zinnias and the goldfinches discovered them. There were three perched on this plant. I took many shots through my double paned kitchen window, several of which had ugly vertical distortions from the glass. Others were out of focus. I used high speed bursts hoping to catch peak, in-focus moments - that didn't always happen. Deleted many images, but couldn't decide which of this group I could eliminate. They're such pretty birds.

A wonderful series of the goldfinches, the colour contrasts are gorgeous and the detail excellent. Great work Isabel! V

Perfect.

Beautiful. I've gotten some pretty good results by putting the camera on a tripod, focusing on the likely perch, and tripping the shutter by remote control.
