Maine! Chickadee in the wild
Black-capped Chickadee: York County, Maine, USA, October 2023 — It is somehow aways more satisfying to catch a Chickadee out in the field or forest, away from our feeders. This bird was a member of a mixed feeding flock in an old orchard and, typical of chickadees, worked his way closer and closer to me as I watched. The only issue was finding a more or less clear line of sight through the brambles for a photo. OM Systems OM-1 with ED 100-400mm zoom at 800mm equivalent. Program mode with my custom birds and wildlife modifications. Processed in Photomator.
