The Hill Country of Texas, I was fortunate to get this candid shot of the black-capped chickadee, a member of the titmouse family. Although a chickadee is a rather common bird and a regular visitor to many birdfeeders, these hyperactive birds are also exceedingly quick and don't stay put for more than a second or two on a branch or twig. Taking their photo is frustrating, especially with a telephoto lens, as they nearly always dart off just as they come into focus. This one, however, stopped and posed for a half-dozen seconds, plenty of time to snap his picture.
