What a cute pair they are indeed! Beautiful captures as always, Karen! I have visited Beep's blog and I love her colorful bracelet and I've left a comment telling her so!! Thanks for the tip. Hope you have a good week, I'm holding good thoughts for you!

Does Mrs Finch turn a cold shoulder or a blind eye to Mr Finch's stunning colours? Super photos. I'll catch up with Beep this week too. Cheers to all, Jean.

Perfect Ruby Tuesday images. We've had a few of these at our bird feeders this winter, but cardinals dominate the woods surrounding our house.

Valerie said...

Beautiful captures, Karen. (I've just returned from an amazing 3 week house exchange on Vancouver Island and was captivated by the wonderful variety of birds there; it seemed to me that the cooler climate lends itself to sharper photographic results - but perhaps that's my crazy imagination!)

Nice shots of these lovely birds. We have a couple pair that nest in Ivy that grows on the back of the house. For us they truly are house finches. I like the front and back pose of the pair.

Lovely shots again Karen. You certainly know how to get your birds to pose for the camera.
