Lovely photos!

I know what you mean, I've been trying to photograph a flock of goldfinches who have been enjoying the thistledown near my wood for over a fortnight now with no success. I creep around the corner but they must feel me coming. How lovely to have time to enjoy these charming birds.

Goldfinch

Thanks for the complement about the photos Janet.I am really a botanist/horticulturist and haven't really paid much attention to birds until recently, plants being my passion and area of expertise, but now I have invested in a camera with a huge zoom lens, hope to do more bird photography and put the results on ispot!

Prague and it's zoo are amazing incidentally!
