Baby Wren being fed
Photographer: Sam Davidson
Location: Rancho Cordova, California
This photo represents for me a triumph in perception and patience. The baby wrens were very small and hard to distinguish from the brush surrounding them, but once I found a few of them it didn't take me very long to discover that they were juveniles and that they were being fed by their parents. I kept my eyes and camera trained on this little one for close to 25 minutes until it immediately perked up and started urgently chirping, both it and I being rewarded by the arrival of the adult with a tasty grub.
