Yellow Alert by clippercarrillo Yellow Alert by clippercarrillo
This is probably the best of my American Goldfinch upon sunflower series to date. It seems to have the best focus out of the many exposures. He eats the seeds as they ripen, and sings sweetly upon the flower at dawn. I am after something that is important to me, and I take it very seriously, because, I think, certain of God's moments must be shared, as if in prayer. If you like the photo, know that both the finch and flower were made for you.

Your clarity is absolutely pinpoint here. Lovely composition, great colors and a wonderful expression on the bird itself! Yes, as photographers, and just a people, we all need to stop and observe the beauty of all life around us, not just the roses. I hope that the song of this bird filled your heart with gladness and your soul with beauty.

My heart was indeed filled with gladness and my soul with beauty when he sang his proud and musical song. "toWEE toWEE toWEEto tweer tweer tweer ti ti ti ti" sung so softly that it was like a caress. It was a good moment in his life, and I was glad to have lived so long to have heard it, as if other meetings were of much less significance throughout my life, and all had telescoped to this.

What a wonderful feeling and how true regarding the significance (or insignificance) of other meetings. I love to watch and hear the birds in our own yard, though none are quite as beautiful as this capture of yours here, despite the fact that they can be quite noisy when dawn breaks. But am very grateful to have such nature around around me. I look forward to seeing more of your work!

Put some finch seeds near them in a feeder, and they'll find the sunflower seeds if you let them ripen on the flower.
