A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

I went outside and shot this picture of a Black Capped Chickadee on my husband's hand! We stood very still to not scare the little bird and I was about 6 feet away when I shot this picture. Thanks to all for your good suggestions for a title..I picked "Love & Trust" suggested by Rob Roy.
A few others suggested trust ..Love for birds and the simple trust of a Chickadee go hand and hand together.

In the The Ones We Love photo essay.

    Yes me too! The very first thing I thought of was

    Wonderful! Chickadees are pretty trusting for sure. I talk to them while they are on my feeder. I think they like it because they answer. LOL
