If you can't beat them...

"Stand by to repel boarders!"

I needed a change of subject away from flowers.  The Squirrels had opted for an early morning visit, caught on the trail cam, so that left birds.  I was trying for general portraits of them in the bushes.  Then a bit of a feeding frenzy developed, so change settings and see what I could get.

Of the shots this one appealed.  The bird in flight is a fledgeling Siskin (Carduelis spinus).  The one trying to prevent it landing is a female Greenfinch (Carduelis chloris).  The male sensibly is just getting on feeding on the other side of the feeder.
