American Goldfinch III

1/400 | f/8 | ISO 640 | Fill Flash

How about another goldfinch image? I took this one on this rainy morning using a different perch which I set up earlier this week. I think this is my favorite goldfinch image I have taken so far. I am still trying to get a shot with two birds on the same perch, but it just hasn't happened yet. Doing set-ups is pretty fun and I have some new ideas I want to try. If anyone here wants to get into set-up photography, I highly recommend Alan Murphy's "Guide to Songbird Set-up Photography", available here. It is very helpful and really got me inspired while reading it.

  1. I would definitely agree this is your best image of the goldfinch series yet. Everything looks great! The composition is lovely and well balanced, and great pose and eye contact! Perfect use of fill flash as well.........
