What an expression I caught lol While everyone hiked up to capture a frozen waterfall I stayed behind (hiking isn’t in my lungs ability, literally) and I was rather bummed that I couldn’t join them. That feeling of being bummed would soon turn to joy as this Magpie stopped by and paid me a visit…for 15 minutes! It was kind of funny, to watch him all puff up to stay warm in the bitter cold and try to insulate from the elements and the wind. I just sat there and talked with him, shooting away with my a550 and he would tilt his head in all these directions when I did. 400 shots later of him…I have several that came out pretty nice. I think he made perhaps the best wildlife mode I have yet!
