Natural camouflage isn’t always drab.
Despite being within 10 feet of where he was perched I didn’t even see this goldfinch until he moved.
He blended in nicely with the yellow leaves and shifting shadows in our maple tree.
Even after I spotted him it was tough to pick him out unless I watched closely when he changed perches.
When the wind blew the foliage parted to allow the sun to shine on him and he really stood out.
