Garden Visitors

I just happened to glance out the window at the garden in time to see these little gold finches passing through the other day.  They didn’t stay long.  I hadn’t seen them around here before or since.

Male and female gold finches

My camera doesn’t zoom very tight, so it’s kind of hard to see them…

After a little while, they were joined by two more males.

I pulled in the zoom with Photoshop, but the resolution is not so great, but at least you can see them.  I need a new camera!

They were picking at the seed heads on these pink cosmos.  I wouldn’t have thought the plant’s gangly stems could hold them.  They must be lighter than they look.
