Goldfinches

This afternoon, I came in here to see if I had any email...and there not over two feet from my computer were these goldfinches...and wonder of wonder they were so engrossed in what they were doing that I sat here and took at least a couple dozen photos...none of which were that good.
I have thought about taking a screen out this window forever but had never done it. After I saw the shots I took that should have had some wonderful captures, I had Roger take it out for me. It is normally a job I could have did by myself, but still not quite capable with my shoulder.
I had to use Photoshop Elements to get these to look even as good as they do. After we took the screen out, they did not come again....but tomorrow is another day.

Well, I think the photos are pretty good. They sure are enjoying those seeds!

You would never know they were taken through a screen! They are great, I love the way you got the open beak. If they are this good with the screen, I can't wait to see the ones with the screen out!

Love it! My husband and boys bought me a bird feeder for Mother's Day. We have some goldfinches that visit every morning. Such a nice thing to watch from my dining room window.

I think they're good, but I've already peeked ahead and I know they get better. I like them all, but the last one is so neat because how often do I get to see a goldfinch tummy? :)
