What are you looking at?

I love it when you capture an image of animals that seem to have such an expressive look that you have to wonder what they’re thinking.  This one shows a tufted titmouse with its head cocked to the side, seeming to be asking a question of me.  Maybe it just heard a sound or saw some random motion, but this quizical look was just perfect.

The titmouse is one of those birds that I don’t catch all that often.  They don’t sit still for long.  Even when they are feeding, there is always a motion going on.  Shifting positions or bouncing their heads from side to side, it is always a moving target.  I caught this one in a moment of indecesion.  Is it safe to go down and grab a few seeds now?  I guess so, then – bye, off they go!

Photography is my way to capture and share the amazing beauty of God’s handiwork in the people and places that I experience every day. I focus mainly on nature and travel subjects but also do alot of event work for my church and the occasional wedding or portrait session. My residence is Roswell, Georgia – a northern suburb of Atlanta. I try to get around the Southeast as often as possible and would love to explore other parts of the USA and the rest of the world.
