Mésange à tête noire, Black-capped Chickadee, L= 13 cm, E=20 cm, P=11 g
I feel the need here to give some details about this shot. In fact, if you look closely, you'll see one foot of the Chickadee under his wing (transparency). So the bird was just leaving this little branch and starting to take its flight and unfold his wings... There are no digital transformation on this picture except from sharpening tool, shadow/highlight and obviously, desaturation. The white softness in the lower part of the image is due to snow out of focus. And Tom, I can reassure you, there were no pin used ;-)
Here is a color image of this beautiful and sympathetic little bird...
