[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Just found out about my "Child Seat" image of this baby Black-crested Titmouse. It will be the 'Final Frame' shot in the April/May issue of National Wildlife Magazine..
It was a great experience to watch this fledgling learning the ropes. Here it kinda tumbled into this 'notch' in our old whiskey barrel planter, and seemed very confused about what to do next ;)

Hello Howard

Wonderful photo of this baby Black-crested Titmouse
in its cute pose and glance, very fine POV,
DOF, and framing, a lovely light coming to the
photo and the baby bird, that very little catch-light
it is doing a great job by enhancing the photo
and rendering it more beautiful, TFS

Hello Howard,
Nice to see this adorable little Titmouse is such a cute pose. I can definitely see why it won a spot in the magazine. With the wide eyed expression on it's face and the way it has it's mouth wide open gives you the sense that it is having a candid conversation. A fine capture indeed!!

Hello Howard.
It has been a while since I last visited your gallery. This is a fine image capturing this baby in the "child seat". Love the light and details in pleasing framing.
Thanks and have a nice day.
