Brown Creeper near UBC Botanical Garden

DSC_1600

Brown Creeper | Grimpereau brun | Certhia americana: In a perfect world, I would have been able to take a step or two to my left so that the pleasingly green background could have provided more contrast to this perfectly adapted bird. But that did not happen. In fact, I was quite lucky to get a picture of this bird species more or less at eye-level, since they move around quite quickly.

Taken next to the UBC Botanical Garden on July 8, 2015, with a handheld Nikon D5200 and AF-S VR 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.
