Photo by P. Vaudry / National Geographic Your Shot
Above is a photo by P. Vaudry which appeared in National Geographic's "Your Shot" online photo gallery. To me it's picture-perfect. During a recent mild February day in Alberta, Mr. Vaudrey hiked along the Bow River, in Fish Creek Provincial Park, just south of Calgary. He noticed this flicker in a tree, while walking through Hull's Woods. The flicker remained in the spot as it was approached by the photographer. Vaudry said: "...it was thoroughly enjoying the warmth of the sun, so much so that it didn't seem to notice that I was there". What a perfect encounter.
