Check out my crown!

This is likely one of the best pictures I've taken yet with my new lens. It's not as sharp as I'd prefer, but it's hard enough just getting these Ruby-crowned Kinglets in the viewfinder! The hawk watch platform at Sandy Hook gave a nice vantage point for seeing the red crown on some of the males. A few had their crowns really pushed up!

Terrific shot, Patrick. Heavy is the head that wears the crown.

99.99% Perfect.

That's a good shot, indeed. And you are right, the diagnostic feature of almost all my kinglet pictures is the empty branch where the bird was perched just a nanosecond before...

I swear I thought that bird was fake! lol Good shot, Pat!

Great shot! Getting a picture of a Kinglet is an achievement indeed.
