Goldfinch on Teasel

Goldfinch on Teasel

Early morning, Sep. 28, 2010, at the Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge found me waiting in my vehicle for one of several American Goldfinches to land on a teasel within camera view.  It’s almost like they know where to land to make sure you haven’t got a clear shot!  This one broke out from the pack and landed on a choice teasel resulting in a nice creamy background.  Taken with the Canon EOS7D, 1/250, f7.1, 400mm, ISO800, 0EV, with fill flash, Canon 400mm f5.6L lens.
