golden crowned close up

Golden Crowned Kinglet.

long and short of the story here, these birds dont seem to be bothered by you walking right up to them. I found a good spot and waited for them to move into the open areas. They did, and eventually the one jumped onto my lens hood!!! My lens and hoos is wrapped in a '3D' camp fabric, and it checked under the 'leaves' for any insects. Coolest thing yet!! This is also a non-cropped frame. 8ft approx distance from sensor.
