A couple firsts for the year

It is getting late in the year but still I got a couple firsts: the first goldfinch to be seen in my yard; and the first hummingbird to be seen in my yard (and a couple bonus pics).

A6600 with Sony 200-600, shot in raw, processed with DXO Photolab 4.

the first Goldfinch

the first hummingbird (Ruby Throated)

Bonus 1, Amazon probably bringing me some more goodies.

Bonus 2. Some kind of wasp, also with the 200-600.

Great shots.  Good chuckle with #3.  Most of us can relate.

Congrats on the yard firsts.  Never had a goldfinch in my yard - let alone my entire region!  Only saw one once up in Orlando while at Disney.  Hummingbirds I've had on rare occasion, though I don't have feeders for them, so it's just chance.

Love the wasp pic - nice detail!
