Kathy Langrock recently photographed this Ruby-crowned Kinglet in St Anselmo, California.
If you've ever aimed a camera at these sprites, you'll know what an accomplishment it is to get a nice clear picture of one.
We love the red leaves in the background, reminding us of the color concealed in the feathers at the top of the bird's head.
Thank you, Therese, for permission to share your beautiful photo with visitors to Birdwatching Dot Com.
