I captured this goldfinch while photographing dogwood blossoms. Although I was facing into the light, I thought it made an interesting effect.

    Beautiful moody shot of this reflective bird. The beak shape makes me think it might be something other than a goldfinch.

    I do so love this! The shape of the blossoms does give this sort of an Oriental feel.

  • Judy Wanamaker

    Judy Wanamaker (Deleted) gave props (18 Apr 2010): a negative. Beautiful work. We usually get big flocks of them, but this year we only had a few. We had flocks of chipping sparrows instead. We have never had them before.
