[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Goldfinch are eating a lot right now. I think it's to get fatter for their long trip South. They will likely only be here another week at the most. Here you can see this male eating Bull Thistle Weeds.


note: cropped and focused slightly

Hello Trevor,
In my country these plants are the same but our goldfinch is quite different. Very good sharpness and light.
