Not sure if he was coming or going or just hopping for the heck of it.

Say, pretty good frozen moment in time! I think that you're starting to take after Norm...

I've gotten shots like that of Scrub Jays. In the jay's case, the bird was hopping. It's hard to tell from this shot if that was what the chickadee was doing or not.

I think he was practicing the pummel horse for the next USA bird olympic team. Why he'd have the wire there I'm not so sure... maybe it's a safty/training thing?

Nice one mullen; usually I don't like having wires and branches in front of a bird but for some reason this wire with the metal staple seems to add a flavor to the entire photo, maybe the trapeze wire effect is at work here.

Really good freeze on this guy, mullen. Looks almost as if this guy was levitating.

Woodmeister, that's exactly what my kids said.
