The nature of things around here

This little goldfinch was spotted outside the windows of the breakfast nook yesterday. He'd been having a drink at the birdbath in the sunshine but by the time I grabbed the camera and adjusted things, he'd already flown up into the tree.

It's difficult taking pictures throught the windows because the images are so distorted!

I've decided not to have resolutions this year and I feel better already because of it. Just throwing that out there.

Resolution-free myself. Feels good, doesn't it? By the way, my goldfinches just returned this week, too. Happy New Year!

Well, I think its a beautiful photo, Kate. And if you didn't tell me you took it through the kitchen window, I would have thought you were perched up a ladder, hanging onto a tree branch, stretched out (like Chevy Chase in Christmas Vacation)but taking this photo!
