These little whirlwinds never stand still. Was slogging along a beaver pond when I heard then twitting. Best I could do under the circumstances. Love their little perky faces.

Very nice. You're right, Ruby Crowned Kinglets are very difficult to photograph since they flit around constantly.

Thanks for sharing.

Done really well with this Cindy. They look related to our Goldcrests who exhibit similar behaviour. Flitting around. this is excellent
Make your life spectacular!

Cindy, lovely framing with the tree branches, and impeccable detail. There is much to enjoy in large view. Excellent.

What a lovely view of this delightful little fluffball, Cindy. It couldn't be any rounder if it tried! I always find these type of tiny birds constantly flit from twig to twig so catching such a nice image of this one isn't easy. Well done!
