Here we see three eleven day old House Finch chicks. The one on the left and right are a day or two from leaving the nest. The chick tucked in between them would take a bit longer to mature. This photo was taken with a Canon SD990 IS ELPH camera set on the SCN digital macro close-up mode. The chicks appear quite a bit larger than life. Here is a picture taken a week earlier. And this picture is where life began.
