Western Light: Yellow on Yellow

Goldfinch amid the mesquite blossoms.

Goldfinch amid the mesquite blossoms.

Spring is the time for color, and in Arizona, that color is more often than not yellow. We see it abundantly in our flowers and our birds. Whether that's by coincidence or by design, I don't know, but yellow in all its manifestations certainly catches the eye. Here a goldfinch rests on the branch of a mesquite tree, blending in quite well with the long, yellow blossoms of the mesquite.
