Picture of the Day - "Finch Flight" - Aug. 10, 2016

Heard my Nemesis (Blue Jay) in a tree, this afternoon. As usual, when I got out the camera, it had flown to the other side of the tree, where I could not see it. It then, along with 2 others, flew off behind the tree. I did see a few goldfinches, taking a bath in a puddle in the driveway, next door. I took a few shots and caught this guy taking off. It is always nice to catch a bird in flight.
