Brave little Goldfinch

All summer I tried and tried to catch the Goldfinch on the sunflowers, but they would not even let me get close.Here I sat minding my own business.
And this little one just jumps down on the limb, right above my head.
Looks at me, like "What are you doing there?"
"If I don't look at you, you won't be there!"
Gives me a hateful look (dont' you think?) as if to say "What are you still doing there?", then took off.

He wanted to jump down on the wall and get the seeds I had spread out, but wouldn't with me there. Actually he was closer to me in the tree than he would have been at the seed.

I have not been able to take any decent bird pictures. Yours are wonderful as usual.

Simply wonderful. I'm paying a little more attention to birds now. Been browsing your blog and your pics are really great. I'll be sneaking back from time to time.

Great shots! What a brave little fellow, as you say! I've found goldfinch to be very skittish!
