Default Antsy

This Carolina Wren was certainly more fidgety than normal. Out of 15-20 shots these two were the only ones that weren't a mass of feathery blur!

I love your bird photos! I've been browsing the threads, and I'm super jealous of the cardinal shots. I was running around in 30" of snow yesterday trying to catch a cardinal. He wouldn't sit still for 2 seconds, though!

The swept feather detail on the lower body of these birds is fantastic.

Aren't Wrens always antsy? Never see one perch for more than a fraction of a second, and that's only at the feeder...
