Black-capped Chickadee taking flight.

Throwback Thursday travels back nine years and about 7 metres (approximately 23 feet) from where I am sitting typing this post. Taken during the first winter after we moved here in the autumn.

It’s also a follow-up of sorts to last week’s Throwback Thursday as both photos were taken the same day. They were taken when I was testing a 1.4x teleconverter, used to increase the magnification of a lens by 40%.

It shows a Black-capped Chickadee (Poecile atricapillus) taking flight. Unlike last week’s Red-breasted Nuthatch we’ve still got lots around the feeders and yard this winter.
