Why Fly When You Can Hop

Ah, the Carolina Wren. a cute little bird everyone loves to see zipping around. This one was showing off his hopping skill.

This one has something, probably a bug, in his beak and he is on a mission to take it somewhere.

He hopped all along our back fence before flying off into the woods.

The Carolina Wren has been a photography nemesis for me. The very first time I got out of the car at Magnolia Plantation and Gardens there were several perched jauntily on the pines in the parking lot, traveling up and down the rough bark that would have made an excellent background.

Excited to be near so much nature potential I thought I would have plenty of opportunities with this little bird so didn’t take any shots. I was in South Carolina, after all. Ha! Two years and many, many wren butts later these are the best images I’ve taken.
