Chickadees during an autumn walk

With camera slung over my shoulder, this past weekend I set out into the woods to enjoy the autumn colours.  Along the path, a cluster of small, playful Chickadees was fluttering about, diving in and out of a dense bush.  Navigating the thick brush like a fighter pilot, these curious little birds were landing for a brief few seconds and then darting out to only a few feet from me.   Raising my camera, setting exposure and patiently waiting for the right moment, I was able to capture one of them during its brief pause.
