Birds and Marsh Marigolds

Just a couple of new images to share. This morning I did my usual trip to the marsh. The marsh marigolds were at peak - on a weekend which is nice. Then after lunch, I climbed into my blind on the back deck. Nice that I have not had to travel far today for photos.

I have been wanting to photograph the visitors to my bird feeders. A bashful indigo bunting feeding would not show itself for the camera, hiding in the vegetation. Then, a male goldfinch and later a male Rose Breasted Grosbeak. I am very close, and although I am in a blind, the birds seem to sense my presence.

I enjoy the birds, they posed perfectly for you.
It is the marsh that keeps me here though.
One minor point would make it even better...the tip of the stick underwater near the lower right edge pulls my eye out of the frame. If you burned it just a touch, it would not compete. Over time, I like the marsh work in general.
