Chickadee with Fly

We were on a road trip when we stopped by a bridge that was hundreds of feet above a remote river. A chickadee landed on a tree near the photographer so of course, photos were taken. In this shot, the chickadee just left the branch to fly away. In it's mouth is a fly that one can assume was just grabbed from the branch. Song birds are so hard to photograph, at least for this photographer, any photo that turns out makes this photographer happy.
