Came home from our long moto ride to Alaska and parts north to find the backyard infested with every manner of pest.

1. Working the seed:

2. Success:

3. Lord over all he surveys:

4. Spies me, the interloper, says, "WTH do you think you are doing here?"

Amongst the Lesser Goldfinch pests, occasionally a few others. These shot through the kitchen window, and little more ISO makes for a bit less saturation and detail, but still reasonable shots I feel:

I also found some interesting bees and such on the other flowers. The sRGB conversions have a fair bit of clipping, so bear with me on them. I am interested if anyone can name the species. Especially the green and gold thing. Never seen anything like that before.

Beautiful set. Love no. 6.

I think the bee in no.8 might be a leaf cutter bee.
I think the bee in no 9 is a Virescent Green Metallic Bee
