The Bugger King

Golden-crowned Kinglet - K Lot trails, Sandy Hook National Seashore (Gateway National Recreation Area), New Jersey

View On Black

I know this guy looks like a Whopper in this capture, but in reality these guys are so tiny that they're not even a bite to eat for most predators. Their small size therefore causes them to have little fear of critters our size, and makes them quite approachable while they are actively feeding. This particular guy was in fact so close I had to be careful not to shadow him, and was constantly having to back off to keep him outside my 5 foot MFD.
