They're such little cuties. Nice job on capturing his eye. That's hard to do with a black head and black eye!

Robyn G said...

And a pretty puff ball at that! I like the icicles and background effect you captured, Brian.

Debbie said...

And now you have icicles hanging of the branches. Brrr.. That little bird looks so cute though.

Sweet little one! It amazes me how well they adapt to harsh conditions. The chickadee is one of my favorite birds for their animated antics.

Super detail, with icicles, and his little claws hanging on, No wonder his feathers have fluffed up to keep him warm. Greetings from Jean

Cute little bird, it amazes me how they can hang on so long on a frozen branch.

Such a sweet little bird. Those fluffed-up feathers are keeping him warm!

Great shot - as is the Killdeer.

I love the icy twigs - much better than leaves wilting in the heat!

PS: thanks for all the comments over the year.

I always think they must be so cold. But, I guess they're not. Great shot, so sharp.
