"Chickadee" by Wil Hershberger <br /><br />
Poecile carolinensis, Carolina chickadee, Berkeley County, WV, USA. This perch was a stop on the way to a feeder nearby. I setup to use the fall color maple tree as a background behind the fallen log and white pine branches. Using a long lens is necessary for small birds to get an image size suitable to printing. I also used some fill flash to open the shadows a little.
