I never get tired to taking pictures of Goldfinches. There is a large bed of Cone Flowers that grows at the entrance to the Rock Creek Trail near my house in Rockville, Maryland and this attracted a large flock of Goldfinches. I took this photo at the end of August using a Nikon D7000 and a 600 mm F4 lens. The exposure was 1/500 sec at F 5.3 with an ISO setting of 400 -1/3 EV.
