Goldfinch in Teasel Forest

An American Goldfinch hunts for seed in the teasel at the Ridgefield NWR, Sep. 8, 2015.  In the interest of full disclosure, the teasel the bird is perched on had an out of focus stem running in front of the teasel top in the original RAW photo.  I replaced that teasel top with an unobstructed one from a different frame since the teasels are a primary ingredient of the image.

Canon 7D Mark II, 1/1600, f4.5, ISO 400, 500mm, 9:52 a.m.
