thanks! I really love this photo. I waited around not even ten minutes with this kinglet and he was just obstructed by so many branches I was about to walk away..he hopped out for a split second and I'm so happy I got he focus on his head! I got lucky with this one :) !

Gasp! Luck has nothing to do with this shot; you are a talent and a half.

That's a great shot! Stunning in its simplicity.

I'll add that I'm jealous: I can't get shots like that to save my life. Anything comparable that I get either stems from a mistake or luck.
