Two Black Capped Chickadees
Flew in and out with high speed!
When it is a cold minus two degrees......
They don't waste time to grab a seed!!!

I was amazed I caught these two birds together in action like this as they were really in a rush!
However I noticed my camera when set on the bird mode selected a fast shutter speed of 1/1250 otherwise they would have been a blur or maybe out of the picture completely. I just got lucky here as both windows panes were not only reflective but fogged up from the cold, making it hard to focus.

Best View in Light Box! Thank you!
