Fast

I've been falling down on posting to this com; I've just been really busy! But I actually have an idea for this one!

finches, winter 2011

These guys have been hanging out at my birdfeeder lately. They always come together, and they move fast! It was hard to get a good picture. They're finches and I'm pretty sure they're purple finches. Isn't the male gorgeous? I looked them up. Roger Tory Peterson (I just invested in his Field Guide to Birds of Western North America) said the male looked like he's been dipped in raspberry juice. Which is about right!

So pretty!
Thanks! They are pretty, aren't they?
What a gorgeous picture!
Aren't they just beautiful?

He does, doesn't he? It's a lovely picture.
I loved that description! They're so much fun to watch.
Beautiful! What a good shot.
thanks! I was surprised they let me get that close; even with the zoom. Maybe they're getting used to me?
Lovely shot, and the male really is a gorgeous shade.
He's so pretty! It's really interesting how beautiful birds are when you look. Or possibly that I'm just dorky...
Thanks! I've seen purple and house finches, but I know they come in a wide variety of colors. But to tell the truth I was amazed I got that shot.
