Walking alone in the forest unencumberd has it's advantages, especially when you are presented by tiny little cutie like this. It was chomping on something it just pick up from the forest floor when I stumbled upon the scene. Friendly bird, it kept hoping and looking back. I didn't bring a tripod with me, sitting on the groun dtrying to brace myself for this shot. No doubt they were many blurred attempts using flash (-1 compensation) on 2nd curtain.
