Brown Creeper at UBC (take 2!)


On any given day, I can pretty much count on hearing or seeing a Brown Creeper climbing up a large Douglas Fir or Red Cedar. They occasionally show absolutely no fear and completely ignore my presence. In fact, they sometimes seem to get so close to me that I’ve actually had to back up a little to allow my lens to focus properly.

I realize that I already posted another picture taken at about the same moment, but I just couldn’t resist! And as you will notice, I think I did a much better job of calibrating the photo with Photoshop.

Brown Creeper (français, Grimpereau brun / scientific name, Certhia americana), University of British Columbia, Point Grey Campus, Vancouver, BC, Canada, November 7, 2014. Taken with a Nikon D5200 and AF-S Zoom-Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED (ISO 1600, 300mm, f/5.6, 1/320). Not baited, called in or set up.
