Non-breeding Male American Goldfinch

Non-breeding Male American Goldfinch

I found this American Goldfinch at the Ridgefield NWR on Aug. 19, 2011.  I particularly liked the pose this fellow gave me as well as the background colors, which seem to complement the bird’s colors.  Taken with my Canon 7D, 1/400, f6.3, ISO400, Canon 400mm f5.6L lens, and a touch of fill flash since the sun was not behind me.
