Goldfinches are regular visitors to my garden feeding on nyjer seeds that I put out for them in a feeder. With a bit of snow on the ground I decided to try to get some shots of them perched on teazel seed heads nearby. Goldfinches often fight over food but the action is fast and furious so there's a lot of luck involved with getting them in a good position and sharp. I deliberate shot at ISO1600 to give me a fast enough shutter speed to freeze any action.
