94/365 – Goldcrest

Animals, Nature, Photography

If only this little guy had turned around, he would have made my day!  I have only ever caught fleeting glimpses of these shy little birds, but this one spent a few minutes hopping around a pine tree on the edge of our campsite.  I hadn’t anticipated photographing birds, so my camera settings were all wrong.  The first few shots were a blur and as I fumbled with the camera I prayed he’d hang around long enough for me to get one shot (at least).   His distinctive gold crest is only just visible here and…well…he does have a cute little bum!
