This little gal sat on the feeder for about a half hour resting and feeding.

A heads up on, “Finches.”

I noticed earlier today, both male and female Finches are beginning to feed on Cone Plant seeds. “They love the Seeds.”   So, if you live in the Midwest, and love to shoot Finches, get your camera ready.  They really are a great subject and usually spend time on the plants. They are very cautious, however, so the best way to capture them is to be sitting somewhat near the plants  –  not to close –  so they’ll get use to your presence and start feeding.  I’ve got a 75-300 zoom that works well in these situations. I also have a Point and Shoot that takes excellent images.  Whatever you’ve got that works well for you will do the job.
