End of a chickadee

The tail end, that is.

I was trying to catch this one at the feeder, but was a split-second too late. But look at those fanned wings and tail! And the little curled-up feet!


The blurred curves below are wing tracks.


More conventional view. Lined up for the feeder. Waiting for me to put the camera down.

Back to planned posts, next. A more cheerful look at the Crescent Beach critters.

If your comment is on a post older than a week, it will be held for moderation. Sorry about that, but spammers seem to love old posts!

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
