Carolina Wren 4
We live on a flag lot set in the woods, so I can point the camera in almost any direction and film against a woodsy backdrop. I was actually standing on the porch when I took this picture. The wren was building a nest in the cap of the propane tank on the side of the house. Each time it left the nest, it would stop at a branch on a small tree. After watching for a few minutes, I focused on the spot where it routinely landed. Of course, on the next trip, it passed right on by the tree and went further into the woods, landing on this deadfall and striking a classic pose. It stayed long enough to allow me to get a much better composition.
