A little bit of recent Goldfinch activity in honor of Easter....

Most people that saw me during my bird photography sessions would wonder what the hell I was doing.  I'm usually stuck in a pose with the camera up to my eye for lengths of 30 minutes on average until I absolutely have to move because the position is killing me.  I used to use a blind tent but the weather beat it up over time.  

It takes a lot of patience to get close enough with a zoom lens to get good photographs.  For every "good" photo, there's about 6 more photos that are too similar or just not good at all.  

I hope you enjoy these recent Goldfinch visitors of mine!...

I've never had a group of Goldfinches collect on my roof before.  Thought it was pretty interesting when I turned around once.  I guess they'll go anywhere together.

If you're new to visiting GadgetSponge and wondering why the heck I have photographs of birds on my website, it's because nature is very important to me and part of the whole circle of GadgetSponge.  I try to keep as many parts (junk) out of the landfill in my creations.  This can only help nature.  That's the quick synopsis of it anyway.  Many of my past posts elaborate more on this train of thought.  See you soon!
