Find a patch of Scottish Thistles and you will find some Goldfinches in Ontario this time of year.

Very nice images! They are perfect imo, the only thing i see (wich is not so bad at all) is the grain/noise that could be distraction.

Thanks Jim,

I took these under bright sun around 1 o'clock. Worst time of day but I was waiting for my wife and this gave me something to kill the time.

Thanks Swede,

I agree. I normally shoot at ISO 100 and for some reason failed to note I was at 400. This accounts for the noise.
