A Close Encounter...

with a Black Capped Chickadee!!

Trying to stay cool, in the shade of this tree,

and posing for pictures!!

Yesterday was wonderful!!
I came home to this little cutie sitting at the window.
He never moved.
I opened the window and shot these three pictures
and then he flew off.

The first imaged is cropped slightly,
the other two are not cropped, none have been edited.
I was just that close!!

Exciting stuff for me!!

  9. Hi Debbie...You need to try the seeds in your hand, and you can get an even closer shot, of course he may leave his calling card ; }
    Good shots girl, and good that the little bugger was in great shooting distance !

  12. This bird must trust you. It's a beautiful bird. I learned from my neighbour how his voice sounds but I never had the change to see it.
    Have a nice day Debbie.
