Artist's Description

As I working in the house this morning, I heard a loud bang on the French doors leading to the patio. Just as I figured, one of the little goldfinches feeding on the patio had a head-on collision with the glass doors and was laying on the ground, stunned and shaken. I grabbed my camera with the macro lens and went out to see what I could do. The poor little mite let me pet him and talk soothingly to him and didn’t even budge; then he allowed me to snap several shots of him up close. When I put my finger under his tiny talons, he perched onboard quite willingly and we both enjoyed a brief visit. Then he hopped onto the brick wall of the house where he remained a bit longer as I talked to him and assured him he’d be okay. He looked at me so trustingly and then allowed a few more pictures. Finally, when I approached him in invitation to climb aboard my finger one last time, he did so, lingered a second or so, and then took to the skies. It was a glorious moment for me, an early Christmas present from the good Lord, or at least that’s the way I see it. Just thought I’d share my sweet encounter with the goldfinch and let you see his beauty up close!
