That's a great catch and well-framed.

 

You obviously have much better reflexes than I to capture that speedy guy on the fly with manual focus!

      This was shot in 2010 with a Panasonic FZ-35 bridge zoom.
      There were 8 ducklings the rest became cat's dinner and these 2 were saved and are now grandparents
      I was too lazy to find a larger size.

      This is a Black-capped Chickadee seeking shelter in the apple tree in our Minnesota backyard.  These little guys are always fun to watch and always seem happy.  This one ducked into the apple tree for safety, likely after seeing me point my E-M1 mk11 and 300mm f4.0 his direction, shot at ISO 1600.

      It is the season for baby birds here in Minnesota.  During a walk around White Bear Lake last weekend my wife and I heard the distinctive sounds of hungry young birds, and sure enough I spotted this little Downy Woodpecker poking its head out waiting for dad to feed him.  We went back to the same White Birch tree two days later, and the little ones had already left their nest.
