Nature in a suburban backyard
Beautiful bird shot. Wish we had chickadees round here, they can be quite tame and are more fun to watch than our house finches and sparrows. You have to go up into the nearby mountains to find them in our county.
I like this bird shot, Rusty. Do you know the species and I was curious as to what it is standing in as well.
Very cute little guy.
he's so beautiful, now I have to go find out why he's so colorful
It's a Blackcapped chickadee. The colour is probably accentuated as I was using flash fill with a 300mm telephoto. He is standing on a small platform which serves as a feeder right in front of the 'Retreat'. It's quite a surprise how fearless these little fellows are. Just stand still for a few minutes (in warmer weather preferably), and they will eat right out of your hand.
Oh, yes - he is standing beside a mixture of seeds, corn, etc. The telephoto makes the depth of feild very shallow.
Wow, great capture and what a beautiful subject. I keep a feeder outside the sliding glass doors of my kitchen, where I do all of my work. I enjoy seeing the visitors, old and new stopping by for me to snap.
awesome shot!! beautiful chickadee! he looks like he's trying to decide what to feast on next...
What a precious little thing. They eat out of your hand in many places! Just takes a little patience!Thank you for visiting My World !
What a beautiful little bird! Can't wait to get back to Washington State and start my "spring feeding".
How delightful! You take such personable animal portraits, and I love the "popcorn" snow photo.
Ohh this is a nice one.
