Gnatcatchers, American Dipper, and Kinglets
This is a group that I surely need to photograph more. I added the Golden-crowned Kinglet photos two weekends ago after an encounter at Hoover Nature Preserve. My photo of the American Dipper was back in the 5 megapixel Kodak point and shoot days (It was an early superzoom that even shot RAW I LOVED that camera, but ultimately it made crappy images compared to my tools today). I'd love to make a trip to the Montana canyon where Megan and I watched this bird dip and bob through the rapids just below a fairly significant waterfall. When we visited around the Fourth of July, 2007, the snow was still melting in the mountains there.
