I was having a bit of a contest with a Ruby-crowned Kinglet the other day. His goal, or so it seemed to me, was to flit in and out of the Camelia branches and avoid getting his picture taken. My goal was to get an unfuzzy photo or two!
If you go by points, I’m pretty sure he was the clear winner….say a score of 500 to 3. But, I did manage to get a couple of shots where this little fellow was fairly in focus, so I’m declaring myself the overall victor of the competition.
I wish he had flared his flaming head feathers, but he opted only to give the slightest hint of his concealed crown. Ah well, we’ll save “Capture the Crown” for a future game.
