I thought it was funny how this chickadee looks like he's lost in thought.

I am not sure about cropping, but this one is straight from the camera--a Hermit Thrush from this week.

This probably my closest closeup, taken back in 2014. 800mm(400mm + 2x extender) from about 12-15 feet away.


Great picture @HamRHead. I love it! ? @lonestrangerGreat picture as well! One time, I took a photo on my terrible camera of another bird from 2 months ago, and zoomed it in, saw another bird. And it was a White - throated sparrow ? They are cool birds ?

This one was a too close mistake on my part back in 2009. I was walking the edge of a roadside picnic site looking for something to photograph when I heard birds making a commotion and sounding alarm calls. This piqued my curiosity so I wandered towards the sound to see if I could figure out what the commotion was all about. Well, it turns out that I was the cause of the commotion, or at minimum, added to the commotion. I was unknowingly getting closer and closer to this Yellow Warbler fledgling that ignored mom and dad's warning calls while I was misinterpreting them.
