Great Backdrop

A House Finch hen on one of our feeders.  I thought his was a great backdrop.  The bird feeder was there before the flower, which is a Rose of Sharon.



A lovely House Finch hen, waiting her turn at the feeder in our back yard.  The feeder has been quite busy these days, with lots of fledglings about.  Such pretty little things.
