Black-capped chickadees are a favorite bird of mine because of their curious nature and spunky attitude. They are always quick to find a feeder, and if you’re persistent, they will learn to take food right from your hand. I lured this little guy into my yard with a bird call CD. They don’t usually sit still long, but he managed to give me a nice pose anyway. I took this in my back yard in Rockaway, NJ USA with my Nikon D3100 and 70-300mm zoom lens.

I’ve always appreciated nature, but I didn’t show interest in photography until digital started to come into it’s own. I had many cheap cameras over the years, but when I got the Nikon D3100 for my birthday last year, I really started to realize what photography was all about. I’ve had such a blast learning on the go over the past 10 months. I’ve gotten shots that I could have only dreamed of a year ago. I hope you all enjoy my photos, and by all means, BUY SOMETHING! =)
