Halloween Goldfinches

Goldfinches are very flighty birds, and it’s rare that I get close enough to be able to take a decent picture of one. Maybe it’s something to do with the lateness of the season, and getting some last-minute food before migrating south, but there were a couple of Goldfinches in Woodbine Park that let me get close enough to take pictures:

Niagara Falls with a Telephoto Lens

Took the girls to Great Wolf Lodge in Niagara Falls, and while we waited for our room to be ready, we headed to down to see The Falls.

I had my telephoto lens with me, and put it through its paces while at The Falls.
