After skiing we went to our friend’s home to hand feed the chickadees. Last time Silje did not let the chickadees land on her hand but this time she said she would. This picture tells the whole story.
She held out the sunflower seeds and turned towards us and didn’t see the chickadee coming. When it landed on her hand she jerked her hand back so fast that the seeds are still suspended in mid air as the surprised chickadee flew out of the upper corner of the photo. The look on her face is priceless.
