Camera Critters: Tufted Titmouse

Posing for its portrait a Tufted Titmouse watches me intently while bathed in the warm evening sunlight

With the weather turning cooler these little birds are now swarming to the feeders

Clutching a sunflower seed tightly the titmouse pauses momentarily.  Never sitting still for long photographing these little critters can become very frustrating as they strike the perfect pose and then flit away before I can swing the camera, achieve focus and shoot.  I usually end up with as many empty frames or frames of blurry birds flying away but that is part of the fun of photographing these feathered friends of the woodlands.

The titmouse is such a gentle, sweet, little bird. They visit our feeders often and they're a joy to watch.

You've captured them beautifully, by the way.
