Description

My in-laws recently moved into a house near the local Greenway. The morning after Christmas I braved the cold temps (-5 F) to photograph birds in the hoary frost and I lucked out and came upon a small flock of Black-capped Chickadees foraging by the river. They would sprint out of a tree grab seeds of the dead foliage and dash back into the comfort of the tree. I tried to photograph this, but just couldn’t get the shot. On my way back home I used the remaining photos in my digital camera and did a “hail Mary with Autofocus” and was rewarded with the Chickadee shot of a lifetime. I don’t think I will ever top this Chickadee Photo.
