It’s not often I can get a photo of a tufted titmouse; these little spitfires are so fast, they’re gone by the time I adjust the camera. This one was a bit more leisurely, though, and gave me a split second to nab him. Got you Mr. T squared! (I got the idea for the title from my daughter in law Chrissy who calls me Mrs. B Squared (Bonnie Barry); she’s an engineer and thinks mathematically; I’m an English major and numbers are not my strength).

    Can hear the bird thinking “Is that what I really saw?” Great shot – love the image of the eye and hair.

    What a great shot. Love the DoF and the nice close up of Mr. T Squared! Your daughter-in-law provided great inspiration for the title.

    Captured at just the right moment so as to get his little top not in an upright position! The green shades of the background are lovely and love the way the lighter shaded green is like a halo around the subject, adding punch to it! Lovely! : )

    He is soooooo sweet, Mrs B Squared! ;o) The jaunty little pose suggests “c’mon, I’m not hanging around to model for you!” I’m so pleased you got him to add to your collection of stunning birdie photos! Gosh, you must have enough material to provide a bird identification guide book for featherballs in your part of the world……… ;o)
