Getting Close: Tufted Titmouse

The Tufted Titmice and White-Breasted Nuthatches have been swarming to the sunflower heads. They have become so acclimated to human presence that Willard and I can photograph them from only a few feet away.

This image as well as the White-Breasted Nuthatch in my banner was shot from about 10 feet with the 100-400mm lens.

Hi Salty,
What a great photo, and macro, you capture a great warm feeling with your shots.

Thanks for your welcome back message and kind comments.

My GGGrandfather was a shepherd somewhere up in Scotland.

What a sweet photo! The detail is so crisp! We have these little guys feeding off of our doorstep (hubby is always certain to leave a handful of birdfood on the step when he drinks his morning coffee... in part to make sure the neighborhood cats don't get too close)!
