Black-capped Chickadee on Lichen Covered Branch

This image was taken late December around the same time as my previous Black-capped Chickadee post on December 30th. The photograph was a setup image, taken at my friend Eric Dresser's bird feeders. I am always on the lookout for nice perches and will collect them for later use in situations such as this. In this case, I had found this beautiful lichen covered branch about a week earlier. By placing perches next to a feeder I am able to attain many photos of feeder birds such as Black-capped Chickadees on the perch of my choice, allowing me to add a bit more artistry and personalization to my photos.
