Golden-crowned Kinglet at UBC


Golden-crowned Kinglet / Roitelet à couronne dorée / Regulus satrapa: This group of kinglets were so unconcerned about my presence that I actually had to back up so that my lens would auto-focus (it can only focus down to a minimum distance of 1.5m). It always amazes me when birds mob the photographer (or the birder)! Taken on the the Point Grey campus of the University of British Columbia, with a handheld Nikon D5200 and AF-S Zoom-Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED (ISO 1600, 300mm, f/5.6, 1/80). Not baited, called in or set up.
