ISO 400 Ctr. Metered hand Held
Shot from about 8feet away and tightly cropped
w=Mac's I-Photo

This is a Black-capped Chickadee. The hole its busy expanding is in the top rail of a split rail fence. Its approx a 4x4 piece of wood. Its along side a fairly well used walking path at the Arboretum in Gr. River LI NY Those are wood pieces in its beak, which were being dumped
about 20 ft from the nest hole.

Looks like he is working hard on the expansion project. Excellent textures as well as details, Jack.
