It is that time of year again to start watching the thistle for American Goldfinch feeding on them. That was the goal this afternoon, but things don’t always go as planned. While I could hear them in the area, no Goldfinch were showing up on the stretch of thistle I was watching.
There were lots of Bumble Bees cooperating though.
Eventually an American Goldfinch did show up along with another Bumble Bee. While not quite what I was after, it does make for an interesting photo.
To finish things off was this Dragonfly eating a bee.
