Outstanding shot. At least the little guy will be full for awhile, and give his parents a break.

Out early protecting "his" feeder.

When I transferred my images to the computer, I discovered that somehow my files were set to jpg instead of raw. I don't remember ever doing that! -? Fortunately, I was still able to open up the shadows sufficiently.

Beautiful capture Gene!

Bird ID if any happen to know. Eastern appalachians, approx 2000 feet elevation.
Bird was no more than 3 inches long. I feel it is a juvenile of some kind.
I was in the backyard feeding the haws and this little one landed 6 feet away and begged
for a portrait.
