Carolina Chickadee Photo Tips

Carolina Chickadee Looking at Me This cute little guy, the Carolina Chickadee, was a lot more difficult to photograph than I expected.

Have you ever noticed how some websites seem to draw you right in immediately, while others lose your attention in a matter of just a minute or two? Have you wondered what sets them apart?

We Have to Stop and Listen

I grabbed my camera and headed out the door with no particular destination in mind. In fact, I wasn’t even certain I was going to take any pictures. I just knew I needed to escape for a few hours.
