Default cooperative goldfinch

went back to my new "favorite bird park" yesterday, and after getting shots of the baby coots, i managed some nice close shots of goldfinches on the thistles... one let me get within about 15 feet, an i was able to get a lot of great shots. these are cropped only slightly for better composition...





this one was shot from a little farther away - perhaps 20-25 feet - but it was nice to get the maie and female both on the thistle at the same time...

Love the birds in the thistles. I especially like #3. The wing spread on the female makes for a nice dynamic shot.

Cheers
