So totally unexpected!! I tiptoed outside in my socks with my 70-300 lens ready to go. I was sure he would fly away but to my surprise he didn’t!! SOOC expect for some cropping as my lens wasn’t long enough.

  2. He does look to be lording it over whoever is around. I love thinking of you as stalking the wild goldfinch in your socks.

    I am jealous, this guy is a beauty! For a surprise capture you did a wonderful job! Love those yellow feathers! A little sharpening would help, but personally, I don’t mind the softness in the image!

  4. What we all do in the name of photography. Nice capture!!

  5. What a handsome fella! You must be very sneaky!

  6. Nice photo and what fun that the bird sat still on the branch. It is hard to take pictures with telephoto lenses. When I enlarged the picture I saw that it was somewhat fuzzy. You could have tightened up the image with unsharp mask in Photoshop.

  7. So much the Lord of All He Surveys! You were lucky he indulged you.
