- I usually avoid feeder shots. This guy insisted! He held this pose for more than 7 minutes while I sat on the patio. I took a half dozen shots, took some shots of a Goldfinch, some nearby daffodils, and since he was still posed, took another half dozen shots at different aperatures. I then put the camera down, climbed the steps and went into the house. I looked out and he was still there.
