Trusting Titmice


The tufted titmice that visit our feeders have become exceedingly trusting.  One cold afternoon, wanting to try something different, I put the 24-105mm lens on a Canon 60D and placed a couple of sunflower seeds in the hot shoe on the other camera.



Since I hadn't refreshed the seed in the feeders the titmice wasted no time in beginning to feed from the top of the camera.


The ultimate though was feeding them from my left hand while holding the camera and shooting with my right.

I absolutely love the bird in your hand. Titmice are kind of the clowns of the woods - they're so outgoing!
