Black-Capped Chickadee 4
You seldom have too much focal length when your subject is a small bird. Even 300mm on an APS-C body (frames like 480mm on a full frame body) left plenty of room for cropping in this short-distance (about 9'/3m) shot. I opted to retain the interestingly-shaped branch in this case.
