Golden Glory

Two of the first pictures taken in 2007.

American Goldfinches winter in the South and love the small black thistle seed seen in my parents' feeder in the photos. My parents have been trying to get some decent photos of these brightly colored visitors with their camera but could never get close enough because the Goldfinches are very skittish. I was able to take these from the inside of their sunroom with my telephoto zoom.

My photography goal for 2007 is to post at least one photo each week. I think that's much more manageable than my 2006 goal of one each day.

I've made a slide show using some of the flower pictures I've taken since I got my camera in August 2005. Another goal for 2007 is to learn how to use more of the features of Photoshop Elements so I created this to get some practice with slide shows. I wasn't sure how to share it so I posted it on YouTube. Another first for me!

A very intriguing strategy for attracting Goldfinches! I actually snagged a few seeds from my parents feeder so I can plant them in a pot. I want to see what variety of thistle it will produce plus they are cool to photograph!

Our growing season is nearly year-round so I can have flowers all of the time. But it also means that we have to cut the grass 11 months of the year, too. Well, Juannie has to cut the grass!
