We have a lot of chickadees coming to the feeders and some of them just can`t wait for me to spread out the peanuts. This little guy took quite awhile to make his choice and I got about ten shots of him before he flew off with a biggie..

Thank You to Donna Mullins for the spotlight!!
Thank You to je suis moi for the nomination!! .. both are much appreciated!

    How precious and what a endearing capture to remember...I'll never forget how excited I was too when I got a chickadee to eat from my hand and also captured a picture of a chickadee on my husband's hand before it flew away with the seed...To gain their trust is the most wonderful feeling...You have my vote.
