Best Viewed Larger… Thank youI was shooting birds in a tree near my bird feeder when I turned around and right behind was this little
American goldfinch feeding. He turned looked at me. Then I could almost hear him say Okay One Pose! Then I Go Back to Eating! (per-chic-or-ee! If you understand bird talk)
Which he did after I got this wonderful close-up of him. Taken on May 23 in Veneta, Oregon, with a Canon ESO 50D, EF70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM lens at 1/250sec, F 8, ISO 400, Focal length 180mm.
