A Ruby-crowned Kinglet stopped briefly at a cherry tree in our neighborhood before moving on. They are almost constantly on the go. The Kinglets can flash a ruby-red crown when they are excited – apparently this photographer didn’t make the cut.

The 2016 Audubon Photography Awards have been announced and I was lucky enough to have three photos included in the Top 100 gallery. My photos are numbers 54, 59 and 91.
