Leaping Into The New World


A pair of Great Crested Flycatchers were nesting in my backyard.  This image was one of the baby flycatchers leaving the nest.  Each day after I got home from work, I spent time photographing their progress.  It was hanging out at the cavity several time and finally left the nest and flew into the nearby oak tree.  I was lucky to have been able to capture the only frame of the fledging process.
