This little character has been mopping up under our feeders for some time now and it has become completely at ease when we walk around the garden. I lay down four feet away from it and the mouse calmly watched me, even the click of the camera did not disturb it, great stuff!
It is good to get back to blogging, I am now fit and well again and able to use my camera again. A few years ago I planted the alder tree in our garden that this goldfinch is busy feeding from. This image makes the effort well worthwhile.
