‘Child Seat’ (Titmouse Fledgling)

Buy this picture
I recently found out my "Child Seat" image of this baby titmouse will be the 'Final Frame' shot in the 2013 April/May issue of National Wildlife Magazine. When I took this shot the baby was clumsily bopping around, so I had to keep my shutter-speed up. Still remember its awkward movements, it was fun to watch. Here the fledgling has fallen in to a notch in our whiskey barrel planter, and seems rather confused about what to do next 😉
F/7.1, 1/1250th, ISO 500, Canon 1D Mark III, 300mm f/2.8 + 1.4x ext, no flash.
