Capturing birds is not easy, especially in the late evening when they are busy feeding. They hover, they flap and flutter, they swoop and dive, they peck, they look around in rapid jerks, constantly on alert for predators or provisions. They are never still.
This photo was one of many I took of goldfinches on one particular evening. Most were a blur of wings and swaying grasses. This one, however, turned out rather nice!
