Tufted Titmouse in Aerial Display
Photographer: Richard Rigterink
Location: Kensington Metropark, Michigan
Story: 
My intent was to record the bird in flight in order to appreciate their agility and how they utilized their feathers and body position to control movement. Anticipating the bird's approach route and utilizing a cable release I was able to stopped this titmouse just as he was turning to check out other incoming competitors.
