The only thing I see from my front porch is passing traffic.
So it's easy to be jealous of these shots.
Imho the center two are my favorites.

No. 2 is my favorite. I enjoy the Goldfinches, they are at my feeder all year but when they turn yellow I know spring has come.

They are all nice shots.

Thank you Lou. Hard to get the detail with the Yellow. Always has some blown highlights.

Mr. Dawg - A great series - I agree that yellow is hard to capture, and those speedy little Finches are hard to capture too - but you did a beautiful job with these. Thanks for sharing them!
