Laurie and I were about to take our bikes out for an early morning ride and discovered four goldfinches furiously feeding on a bouquet of cardoon blossoms. Of course, by the time I got the camera, only one bird was left. It was fascinating to see them rip apart the thistle blossoms to get to the tasty seed. The complimentary colors of yellow and purple were vivid.
