I have a nest box with chickadees nesting inside. The young have hatched so the male and female are constantly going in and out feeding the nestlings. I have an apple tree just below the nest box and I noticed whenever I’m outside working in the garden, which is nearby, the adults land in the apple tree before going into the box. I took this photograph Friday evening. I just waited by the apple tree for the adults to come back from their search in finding food for the youngsters. While I was out there a high, thin bank of clouds moved over the sun softening the light. I don’t know if this is the male or the female but it landed on the angled branch which made for an interesting composition. Shooting wide open also softened the background leaves.
