Golden Finches

Nature, Photography

Sunflower seeds are maturing that attract lots of birds especially golden finches.  Taking advantage of cool and pleasant morning yesterday, I went back to McKee Beshers sunflower field to photograph some of these beautiful golden finches. Instead of using tripod last time, I decided to use monopod that gave me better mobility in capturing the ever-moving finches. The trick was to hold the camera with heavy 600mm lens steady to produce sharp images.
