An exceptional photo of a Chickadee with a quote that expressed it perfectly!!!

Bird Girl said...

Well, then Birdlady -- you must be very wise...your common little chickadee is indeed...remarkable!!!
I shall stash that quote away in my arsenal! ;-)

The Birdlady said...

Nick, JJ, Barb - thanks!

Lovely chickadee photo, I like the simple background.

The Birdlady said...

Thank you, John. I use a 2.8, but with the 2X teleconverter, it is 5.6. In the light we've had lately, I don't get the convenience of 1/250, which is what I prefer with birds, but I like the backgrounds to go away.
