Thank you Jeff. One of those funny moments.

Amazing shot Yves, the kingbird looks as if he is stretching above the leaves to get a good look at the photographer. Love the expression…great timing on that shot. Beautiful composition as well. One of those fun shots.

Yves Langlois

Thank you for nice comment Debra. The fun (and surprise) was for me, not for the bird. Yes, this is one of those delighful moment in photography. A successful moment to remember.

Heather Mellon

That's what makes photography so interesting at times.. but you got a great shot of this kingbird guarding its young. Nice composition and I especially like the expression you captured so well here, Yves!

Yves Langlois

Thanks Heather. Tell you, I was quite excited at the scene and had my fingers crossed for the shot to be good. I know some birds can have a very different look when hangry. I was quite surprise to see the kingbird with that expressive look.

I was shooting the nest with chicks. Since they where not at risk any more, I decided to take a little more time on the job, expecting a nice shot with the parents. They finaly gave me a shot, but not the one I expected.
