[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I took this a few weeks ago. This is the same bird that refused to sing another note once I'd been noticed. One thing that I've learned is to keep my camera on a higher shutter speed because these critters move around fast. They don't like to stay in one spot for very long, but I suppose if I was a bird and there were fields surrounded by cats with large teeth, I wouldn't either. There are other predators, but on this particular day, I spotted two cats eyeing this birdie with glazed eyes and in a crouch. They didn't catch him by the way, and as I mentioned earlier, this guy didn't sing another note once he realized I was there. What really got my attention was the pretty colors.

There is something inherent in all of your bird images with a couple exceptions...as per the white balance...not that it is bad..and this works well in your images as an attractant...but I am wondering at how you actually do this?

Lovely composition - great colors. Your autumn colors again - love the reds and oranges. So lovely!
