I love birds, but I haven's put much energy into bird photography. In some ways, they are too obvious a choice. There is something about the challenge of photographing subjects hidden from view, or obscured by size or speed, that I find more fulfilling.
However this little bird, presented herself directly in front of me and proceeded to put on a show of gleaning insects from the shrubs and grass. The behavior involved lots of hovering and quick maneuvers.
