In a rare moment of stillness, a Blue-gray Gnatcatcher posed briefly for me at Magee Marsh last week in full view. It was incredibly challenging to photograph these fast moving birds. Their pursuit of gnats was endless and their movements were erratic and unpredictable. This little guy perched briefly on a bare branch without leaves or other branches obscuring the view. For me, this bird’s coloring made it one of the easiest to spot among the tangles of downed brown branches but one of the most difficult to photograph because of its quick movements.
