Goldfinch (Two Photographs) and a Word on Location

To view more of my photography please click on

In many articles on animal photography the suggestion is to get to know the behavior and habits of the animals you wish to shoot. These photos of goldfinch were taken in two different nature reserves. In one, the goldfinch are elusive and tend to hide, in the other they are more comfortable around people. Similar things happen with common painted turtles; in one reserve they scatter as soon as they see people, in another they ignore you completely. Understanding even a small part of the behavior of animal subjects can prove useful.
