The shots of the goldfinches were taken through the window and screen, giving them a smudgy, kind of artistic look. I didn't plant the black-eyed Susan, they were volunteers, probably coming from my neighbors yard. They were beginning to look ugly after blooming and I had planned to cut them back before the seeds dropped, but the goldfinches really like eating them, so I'll leave them for a while. I just hope I don't have them everywhere next year. I don't mind a few, but they aren't all that attractive, unless of course they have a goldfinch attached.
