I recently took these photos of a Goldfinch from about 2 metres away. How, you ask, did I get so close. Well I didn't get close to it, it got close to me. I was working in the kitchen area when it came down onto the bank outside the window. I moved away to get my camera and moved back and took the photos. It seemed completely unaware of my existence. The double-glazed windows are clean enough to take a photo through and there was no sun. As it appeared to be looking straight at me I wonder if it just couldn't see through the glass. Odd.
