Gold in the backyard

This is for Wanda, who got stressed over the spider photo in yesterday's post. Here's something with a little less "eww factor." This goldfinch was visiting a feeder in my backyard. The late afternoon sun sent a shaft of light through the trees in just the right spot. I noticed it while passing by my kitchen window. I grabbed my camera from the other room, focused through the kitchen window and got one good shot before the finch flew off.

Well a whopping Big Thank You, James. This one made me smile not scream.

The shadows in this one are perfect.
