Very attractive ornate capture of a Goldfinch in the mellowing light of the approaching autumn, Ruby.
Good to see your picture after some time.

Beautiful light, good exposure, superb perch and nice composition for this pair of finch, an attractive male and hidden female. Maybe missing a wee bit of focus on the males head, well as compared to rest of the picture..Still a beautiful composition overall.

Hello Ruby, nice to see a post from you once more!
I see you have captured this cute and colorful male American Goldfinch as well as a partially hidden female. Perched high on top of the Cone flower he looks like he doesn't have a care in the world at the moment.
It won't be too long before it will be a challenge to tell the males apart from the females. Their plumages will change quite a bit in the late fall, especially the males.
Hope your summer has been kind to you and you are having a good time over in Massachusetts.
