His Kingdom

male goldfinch 2Friends, this male goldfinch is announcing to the world his joys and surveying his kingdom.  He studied me for about ten minutes and let me shoot his portrait.  The goldfinch are late nesters, so his female has probably laid the eggs or hatched some young ones, either way he was out shopping for groceries. til Tomorrow MJ

  1. You certainly took a nice portrait of this little king.

  2. So, so beautiful! We have a lot of them in our yard. We have both sunflower seeds and niger seeds to keep them happy. It’s always sad when the gold start to fade into the winter coloring.
