Behind The Lens

This photo was taken on a nature walk in the city of Calgary, Alberta, Canada in the fall of 2014.
This photo was taken mid afternoon, I like going in the afternoon, because the deer are less mobile, and easier to find, this little chickadee however made it known it wanted it's picture taken.
This shot was purely accidental, and I had to be quick, as it landed right in front of me, it was a cloudy day, which is what I prefer for my nature walks, as I don't want to over heat.
I do believe I owned a canon T3i when I took this photo, no tripod (I never use a tripod) and no flash, I think at the time I was using a 17-85.
No inspiration, just a nature walk, one of the best ways to stay in relatively good shape :).
Very little post processing, I just softened the background a bit for depth, the color of the picture is actually what color the day was.
In my camera bag
I usually stick to the basic lenses. I primarily use a 17-85mm which is my favorite, I also carry a 50mm in my pocket if lighting calls for it.
When going for nature walks, it is always easy to ignore the tree's, and try to find other wildlife to shoot. Look up every once in a while, if not, you may miss the shot of a lifetime.
