Animals

A photographer has captured the moment a tiny bird gets blasted by the snow – delaying it from moving any further.

Jackie Tighe, 46, was in her hometown of Wexford, Ireland, when a blizzard began to hit the town.

Grabbing her camera, Jackie took to the hills and noticed a little bird struggling to move against the elements.

Quickly snapping some photographs, the pack-house manager captured the moment the Goldfinch is caught in the storm in these incredible photographs.

Jackie said: “When the blizzard was going on I could see that this little bird was standing its ground against the elements.

“Looking at the photo you can feel the cold and sense the struggle that this bird has endured.

“It only took about ten minutes in the storm to get this shot of the Goldfinch struggling against the elements.”
