Rock Wren

St. George, Utah. Nov. 3, 2013. There was a pair hanging around the backyard all week. Most of the time you would see just one, but on a few occasions I saw both together. I don’t know if it was a male-female pair or just two wrens. I really got lucky on the shot. I was set up to shoot at the top of a small bush about 6 ft. away and there was a large rock just in front of the bush. That’s where the Wren landed, 5 ft. away. Sony A77 with a Sony 70/400 zoom at 400. 1/160 F11 ISO 100, from a tripod. Photo is almost full frame in height but cropped on both sides.
