These American Goldfinches love my sister and brother-in-laws garden which has numerous bird-feeders, and a fountain and pond. I imagine they feel like they've hit pay dirt when they find the place. This one was hanging out along with a hummingbird, perching on branches and taking turns cooling off on the warm spring day at the water fountain.

Nature, animals, beauty have been a source of nourishment throughout my life. Photography allows me to capture, interpret, and share that world of wonder I see about me, and sometimes use what I capture as an inspiration to create something new, by incorporating other exposures, textures or brushwork.
I currently reside in Oregon, an environment rich in nature's graces. I have lived in California and New York, too, and everywhere there is a world of beauty around us, if we care to take the time and look for it.
