Black-capped Chickadee – heading in for a landing.
I value my garden more for being full of blackbirds than of cherries, and very frankly give them fruit for their songs. -Joseph Addison

I love the wing effect – and the quote. I’ve always felt the same.
Flaps down! I can imagine a pair of aviator goggles & a fluttering scarf on the chickadee; “Thank you for flying Black-Capped Air.” 🙂
Good catch! I’m always fascinated by the in-motion pictures. Thanks for posting it.
It is always wonderful when we are able to capture these birdies in flight! Bravo!
Nice capture! That’s why I have fruit in my yard too.
Wren – ’tis a true quote for sure!
Lana – LOL – in flight movie, “March of the Penguins”
Zen Birdfeeder – the wonders of digital photography: fire off a ton of shots and keep the few lucky ones 🙂
Mon@rch – thanks! Chickadees seem to be the easiest and hardest at the same time: easy to pish into the open, hard to get them to slow down!
Larry – thanks! We are hoping some of the fruiting shrubs we planted last year will grow fast this year!!
