    1. Thank you Scott. I have a tripod and camera set at the ready and sometimes, stay there shooting continuously. You never know what you'll capture.

    1. Thank you Andrea. I think it's Tufted Titmouse, but doesn't it lose enormous.

  5. Wow, that is excellent Gail. We have those little Chickadees around here, too. The other day they were hopping up and down and flying this way and that on the front porch--snatching insects and leavings from between the slats of the siding and the shutters. Such cuties. Again, great shot!

  6. That image looks for all the world like a photoshop job. If it was mine, I have to blow it up and frame it. It's that good. Good job and nice luck.

    1. Thanks Patrick. I have a camera set up on a tripod and shoot through the patio door. I was quite lucky with this one.

    1. Rose, The Chickadees and Titmice are here year round. They are frequent visitors to the birdbaths. I do love those little birds.

  10. I love so many birds, the Chickadee is a cutie. I also love the Junco who peck through the garden each winter.

    Happy Holidays!

    1. Freda, I only notice the Juncoes when we have snow and they stop by to get water. Happy Holidays to you, too.

  11. I really enjoy having the chickadees around. They seem to have a lot of personality and are so energetic - not as spooked by people either as most birds. Great picture.
