Aerial Maneuvers and Goldfinches

Have you ever witnessed such a spectacle?


Two beautiful American Goldfinches embroiled in a serious courtship ritual.




Ended as quickly as it began.

Beautiful birds... beautiful photos.

These are wonderful captures, Daniel. I've watched and photographed robins this way but not this close and not this well. Lovely.
With all the goldfinches we had this spring I never had the pleasure of witnessing that. Great captures!

A spectacular job with these images!

Oh, I've seen this. It's a very sudden and fierce battle. Awesome shot.

Just thinking about a photo opportunity to keep you busy. Woodpeckers do a very complicated dance . It reminds you of a minuet.

Beautiful pictures. I've read that some birds copulate in flight and must finish the act before crashing into the ground. That almost seems to be happening here.

Such a beautiful dance they do, and how fortunate you were to be able to capture it, Daniel!
Stephanie said…
Love these ones, so bright in color. Great shots!

Truly incredibly photography!! I hope one day to be able to capture birds in flight and courtship dances with the clarity you manage!
