Almost Wordless: This little American Goldfinch was eating the thistle from the dead yellow coneflower in my garden.

      They’re kind of shy. Last year they disappeared for a while. On the advice of my feed shop I put up a thistle feeder for them in the apple tree, away from the other feeders. Now they stop by again.

      I took this through the glass of the patio doors and it gave it a filtered effect.

    Beautiful shot. I always enjoy the different types of goldfinches that visit my baths and fountains.
