and a final one. While slightly out of focus (I'm having near or far focus issues)I thought the background made for an interesting perspective. The light is actually the sun peeking through spruce trees. It is low in the sky this time of year up north.

Nice shots. I never knew goldfinches changed plumage in the winter...they only hang around by us in the Summer, so I've only seen them wearing their bright yellow.

Nice shots. I'm missing the goldfinches thus far this year. Normally, they would have arrived here about a month ago. From your shots, it appears many are staying North. Mild fall?

I've had goldfinches at my feeder for a couple of years now for sure. But it has been a relatively warm fall and the beginning of a mild winter...so far. Thanks for the comments.

Looks like they are keeping a close eye on the feeder!

Very crisp shots. I've had that lens for about 6 months now and wonder how I ever did without it!!!
