I spent the morning at a small flower farm owned by my friends. My main goal was hummingbirds but the American Goldfinches stole the show. This male landed right in the middle of this beautifully colorful scene of flowers that was just starting to get the morning sunlight shining on it. There are times when getting close to the bird is not always better and I think this is one of them. I got to include a lot of pretty flowers in with the bird.
