More Sunshine

This is the American Goldfinch clinging to part of a hanging bird feeder!

This image ( and several others) was made in a late afternoon burst of sunlight! Poor choice on my part as many of the images were seriously backlit with lots of distracting bright spots--and thus trashed. I was able to rescue a few-- seems a good idea to experiment once in awhile! ( Try it)

Thank you to all who enjoyed the flower---and especially to those who presented awards, comments and votes!

Sometimes some background content can add to an image by providing detail of the natural environs. However, bokeh such as here is not to be sneezed at, either.Smile
