I can still remember this curious Golden-crowned Kinglet following me through a local trail peeping away the whole time...captured in 2019.

Nikon D500 w/300mm PF
f4 @ 1/250th ISO1600

A fine image, Neil, of a species that can be challenging to photograph, due to it's constant motion. The grey tones work very well here, and you captured the often concealed golden crown, as well.

a nice one with the two tone bg colours, on a perfect perch for this kinglet.

+1.  Sums up my thoughts too.  Super shot made all the more interesting with its inquisitive look.
Make your life spectacular!

A wonderful image. I love the depth of field and the almost curious expression of this little bird.

Perfect DOF and interesting pose makes for a terrific image of a quick moving little bird. Well done.
