Finches finches everywhere
I don't know what gives me more pleasure, the colours of the flowers in the garden as they bud and bloom, or the vibrant yellow flashes from the finches as they dart and zip through the yard.
I know birds fly... but finches, well, they just seem to really ENJOY it. They are acrobatic, erratic, and very very fast.... so when I saw that they had decided to take a moment's rest to stop by the garden breakfast table where we had some cut flowers from the garden, including some echinacea and mexican sunflowers... well, I grabbed the camera.
They've all but cleaned out the seeds from the tiny flower heads. At one point, there were four finches on the table, three in the bouquet.
