Actually, this is a very close up shot of a Volcano Hummingbird.1861224825_HummingbirdVolcano_east.thumb.JPG.db97f91eeeac3b52ec18032e6d852fa9.JPG

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.

Not super close up, but it's hard to walk up on snipe before they flush.

Everyone, that is some good very close pictures! @Connor Cochrane, I hope I can see a Snipe soon. I think they are so cute ? @BigOly, I have never heard of a Volcano Hummingbird before. Where are they located? I love that Screech owl as well, it is so hard to get up close to them. @Jefferson Shank I love that picture of the Black and White warbler. @BirdNrd, is that a House Sparrow. If it is, it for some reason doesn't look like it to me. Maybe it is because I haven't seen any in a long time. @Bird Brain, it is hard to get really close to Killdeer from experience. Great Job! ?
