A Carolina Chickadee dropped from a tree and sat down a few inches from the swamp surface.
They don’t stay still for long, but this one gave me time for a full series of photographs.
It was pretty clear he knew I was there too.
Both sides of this trail are swamp and thick with branches and scrub trees. A nice place to walk between open areas but decent shots of small critters along here are rare.
Besides, Hawks love to sit up above and wait for a little guy to make a mistake.
