Goldfinch 2

By FeatherFriend
Hi all, just another version of the Goldfinch at Upton Warren chomping away at the natural food, can't think what the flower/weed is but some, I hope, will remind me Wink
Many thanks for taking time out to view and comment on my Squirrel, he has now been shot................with a water pistol! Grin

Lovely seeing him in a natural setting and he's certainly enjoying those seeds of the dreaded Ragwart! Great colours and details.

I too do like seeing a shot of a bird in such a natural environment, Geoff.
Perhaps not so easy to capture as sitting in a hide, but so worth the effort, and you have succeeded very well here.

Little asters, me thinks-- looks like he is eating feathers--- BTTW-- the little shells after the seeds leave the flowers are incredibly beautiful--macro lens!
