Artist's Description

With a little gift in hand, this black-capped chickadee (Poecile atricapillus) along with two others boldly landed on my palm to grab their favorite treat, sunflower seeds. The birds would land one-at-a-time in a quick series, and then flit off to eat the morsel. Once finished eating, they little avians would return for more. When the chickadees had consumed all the sunflower seeds, they flitted off on new business, leaving the other food behind.

Much too close for the telephoto lens, capturing these birds required my EF-S 60mm f/2.8 USM Macro. This situation proved somewhat challenging photographically: I held the camera with just one hand (glad that the 60mm macro is a small lens), and held a lively bird in the other, so there was ample opportunity for things to move during the shot. Nevertheless, some frames turned out nicely. The detail captured in this image is equivalent to the EF 70-200mm f/4L USM.
