I really like this photo - has a beautiful bokeh and the cunning little subject And I love the fact that it somehow can tells the story.. a photographer out birding visited by a subject - that is really neat Voted!

Nominated! In addition to the beautiful bokeh and colors I love the irony here too. It looks like you did manage to get a shot of the bird ... just not with the camera you expected!

I've looked at this photo about 30 times today and I've decided I nominate this, can't fault the technical aspect knowing that the timing would have been critical. I'd imagine the bird stayed there no longer than a few seconds. I also like the fact the camera in the image is a Pentax

No just two cameras; two PENTAX cameras. (a K-5 in the picture and a K-30 taking the picture)

I nominate this photo. Either you waited for hours for that to happen or you just got lucky. Either way, great work!

You captured the bold chickadee's enquiring expression and curiosity so very well I have to nominate this picture.
