Caught in a setting ray of the sun, a female House Finch (Carpodacus mexicanus) She’s standing on our birdbath surrounded by Columbine flowers.


I See You

A female House Finch.  This little bird in this years fledgling.  Despite the weather she seems to be doing quite well.  One can tell the age by the beak.  See the yellow at the back of the beak?  That’s from when she was a baby and she use to open her beak very wide so Mum would feed her!


Looking

This House Finch has a sharp eye out.  There’s been a hawk about!

Sometimes you just have to stop and smell the flowers!

The beautiful little girl was taken with my brand new lens. Finally got it yesterday. It’s a Tamron 18-270mm Macro. So far, so good. Still in the testing and getting use to phase. Have been waiting for several months for it’s arrival, so I’m quite pleased it’s finally here. Availability has been a problem due to demand. Hopefully that’s a good sign. I’m pleased so far!
