I love the chickadees at the lake. They are quick when they come to the bird feeders, so many of my photos turn out blurry. I love their friendly faces, their cheery songs and their social skills.
Last summer I even got a couple of them to eat out of my hand.
It took lots of patience to stand with my hand outstretched, waiting for one of them to land, but eventually, one did.
It felt so light, like a little tickle.
I was honoured.
