Cute but tricky

It seems that whenever I go out into our front yard, there's a Ruby-crowned Kinglet there. I thought we only had one but yesterday I realized that we have at least two. They spend a lot of time in our elm tree and at the suet feeder that's attached to it. And I spend a lot of time trying to get a good photo of one of them. It's really difficult, though, because they rarely stay still for more than a couple of seconds and also they're very wary of me.

The only reasonable photo I've man
aged so far is the one below, which I got when one of the Kinglets decided to check out our platform feeder. Unfortunately, this feeder is in deep shade and my compact superzoom doesn't handle low light well.

I love these tiny birds, but it is hard to get a good picture of them because they are so hyperactive. But cute!
