The Boreal is scarce around here, I have to go a little farther north to find them easily. This passed winter my camera was not working correctly so I made way fewer trips even outside here at home. Maybe I need to rectify that.

How long did she have to stay in that position before the bird came to her?

I love this pic, Jeff.
Pics like this always move me. A little birdie like that must have quite a bit of trust to land on a person's hand.

Even at 500mm that is close! I've never ever gotten that close to one.
Top shot Peter.
