Is that a flying yellow day lily?
Nah, not a flying flower but a flying male American Goldfinch! He’s looking right at us!
I love him.
He’s so bright and cheery with a pleasant song, always happy and chipper.
These next few pictures were made possible by a tripod and a camera on sports setting with rapid fire!
Ooooh, my favorite shot! Look at that wing span and the shape of the tail feather!
On this frame Mr. Goldfinch was coming in for a landing…..
Nice and steady! You did it! I love studying his form and how the individual feathers are positioned just so to allow him balance.
What a nice profile he offered us. After this shot, he began to munch on thistle seeds that I supplied in the bird feeder.
You will always find a nice meal at my house, Mr. Goldfinch!
