  #123 Best of the Challenge Period
Entry 9 of 25
   
 
Sleepy Chickadee       ©2013 ysal
Panasonic DMC-FZ150       9th place, 98 points
1/1000s, f4.9, ISO 200, 554mm, Normal Program, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Adjusted exposure and color, resized using PS Elements.       Extra Info: Mountain Chickadees are rare in my area. When a small group moved into my neighborhood about a month ago, I quickly found out how difficult they are to photograph because they are extremely jumpy! I caught this guy snoozing over the weekend.

    The whitish background is distracting. But all else is good. I love the way you were able to focus on the subject through the bramble. Manual focus???

    Great shot - these little fellows move so quickly, they're gone in the blink of an eye. He really does look a little rumpled, doesn't he?
