Lexington, KY, USA
This lucky shot was captured in Henry County KY during early fall. This field of milo had recently been harvested and only a few isolated stalks of milo remained. This particular piece was being used by my intended target of an Eastern Phoebe that was using it as point to sally out and capture the numerous
small beetles that were hatching. During one of the phoebe’s flights out; this beautiful titmouse came out
of nowhere and struck this pose for a brief second or two. Being that I was focused on this point;I was able to get this single shot before the titmouse left and the phoebe returned shortly thereafter.This happened so fast I wasn’t even sure I got the shot at first. A little serendipity goes a long way sometimes.
Category 2: Chickadees and Titmice only
AWARD WINNER: Category 2: Judges\' Choice
Wonderful capture! It amazes me how often a great shot comes along when you’re intent to capture something else.
An outstanding image!
This is a nice photo of a charming little bird with native vegetation.
