Ruby-crowned Kinglet


The picture of this Ruby-crowned Kinglet was taken in Prospect Park. In the past I would most likely have rejected this photo because of the motion blur on the wing, but this time around it was one of the main attractions for me. Since the head and most of the body of this little Ruby-crowned Kinglet are in focus, coupled with the fact the Ruby-crowned Kinglets are always in motion, this seemed like a good representation of what I see when I look at a Ruby-crowned Kinglet.
I heard an interesting quote on NPR radio this morning on a report about Dorothea Lange – something like – the act of photography makes you see better when your not taking pictures.
