A black cap Chickadee. Normally they don't stay in one spot more than a nano second. This little one was waiting for his turn a a feeder, even so he was twitching a lot.

Aw! He is gorgeous and your photo is too! I know what you mean about them flitting around a lot. You can hear them but once you spot one you have to really keep your eyes on them or they are goooone!

Great shot Michael! I have many shots of empty branches. Do they all have a red dot on their beaks there? Your Chickadees seem skinnier than ours in Calgary. Maybe ours are puffed up to stay warm!

cheers

The red dot on its beak is a little seed of some sort from an earlier trip to the feeder...In short, he forgot to wash up before heading back to the table:)

Fisher Price easy cam:D

Naw!....E-3, 300mm, 100ISO, 1/250sec, f5.6

PS...If you have Olypus master installed you can save the image to your desktop then open it up in OM and you'll get the full EXIF data, unless it's been hit with HDR treatment which is very rare for me...

I already uninstalled the Olympus software, because I couldn't update my firmware (that's the only reason I install it).
For post processing, I'm using Lightroom 2, and for slideshows or just to see the photos I'm using iPhoto (from iLife 09).

Wonderful capture.
