Trying to photograph butterflies through a window while they flutter their way above the grass doesn’t yield the sharpest images. Sharp images aside, it was a joy to capture the duo dancing together.
Somehow I managed to focus and noticed the arrival of a goldfinch…as it turned out the bird on the branch was…the mother and the incoming bird was one of it’s “babies”.
Soon two more “babies” arrived and one exhibited wing flapping behavior…usually this is a little one begging mom for food.
Sure enough…mom produced a tasty morsel and popped it into the little mouth.
One of the other babies jumped in and asked mom to open wide, hoping for a nibble.
There’s always someone who isn’t willing to patiently wait, to say the least. I think sitting on mom’s tail feathers is a really pushy move.
So there you have it…a mom teaching her babies where food can be found, while at the same time, continuing to feed them until they can do it for themselves.
