Weekly Photo Challenge: Launch
I was about to post the photo for this one anyway, and it is a perfit fit for this week’s challenge, Launch.
A few posts back, I posted a photo of a chickadee in flight, not a very good photo, but I made the comment that chickadees don’t fly, they use a hidden jet pack to zoom from place to place. Somewhere in the last few posts, I also posted a photo of a tufted titmouse, noting that I didn’t think I had before.
Well, to go a long with something else I wrote, about how getting back into nature photography was making me even more observant, I have noticed the reason I didn’t have many titmouse photos is that they sit still even less than chickadees do. I chased two of them around a tree the other day…
Of course the auto-focus locked on the one back in the branches, not the one out in clear view, but I kept at it, I don’t give up easily.
Finally, I got one out in the open more or less…
It didn’t sit there for long, it fired up the jet pack…..
…and shot off for parts unknown.
That’s it for this one, hope you enjoyed it as much as I did, and thanks for stopping by!
