One shot

Bird meets world: Less than two weeks out of the egg, a baby finch peers out of its nest for the first time.

    1. Thanks, David. I think s/he’s already out in the world, having fledged with siblings. Wishing them all full and happy lives.


  2. Wow! So adorable


    1. Indeed. And so vulnerable at this age.

  3. Aaaawwwee, this is an adorable shot! You captured a precious moment. Thanks for sharing 🙂


    1. You’re welcome! I felt likely to get a nice photo of this little one just encountering the world.


    1. Thanks, Bob. And now the baby finches are looking like they want to fledge …. today. Wait! I say. I’m not ready. 🙂 Frankly, I’m not sure they are quite, either, but their parents know a lot better than I.

  4. This is a beautiful shot


    1. Thank you. Used a long lens and tried to get close enough to capture this little one’s sweet face without disturbing it or its siblings. Success, I think!
