This little black-capped chickadee was very curious about my bird feeders, and wasn’t letting my presence deter him from checking them out. I usually keep my zoom lens zoomed all the way in because the birds are so small, but I actually had to zoom OUT to get his whole body in the shot. That’s how close he was. I only ever so slightly cropped the photo to center him. This was taken in my back yard in Rockaway, NJ USA with my Nikon D3100 and the 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! =)
