Default A titmouse with attitude

I very much enjoy setting up a feeder in the Winter to feed the local bird population. Aside from giving me an opportunity to photograph birds of all types, it also allows me the chance to see their individual personalities.
This Tufted Titmouse is one interesting bird-very quick, alway striking a pose as if he's waiting for the starting gun to go off. He's definitely a bird with "attitude".

E-30, 50-200mm ED lens

These guys ARE fun to watch, Zig. But, they're so freakin' FAST! Seems like I just drop into focus and they're GONE!

I really like that first one.

Hi Gary,

I don't know which are the more frustrating to catch, a Black Capped Chickadee
or the Tufted Titmouse. Either one of them will give me a good run for the money. Glad I'm not using film.
