Ruby-crowned Kinglet Migrating South
5

While I was out looking for something to photograph, I saw a migrating Ruby-crowed Kinglet in a tall Aster about 11 feet away. I managed to get a few images before it flew a minute later.

I was lucky in that the light was relatively good for a bird that I have only previously seen in deep shadow.

I was also lucky in the position of the bird in that it was almost parallel to the camera, since the total depth of field with the 420mm lens was less than ½ inch.

It was so close the 4 inch bird almost filled the frame.
