bird photography : ruby-crowned kinglet

After a sad morning when their cat Moon passed away, John and Beth stopped by Monticello Park on the way home from the crematorium for a bit of birdwatching to lighten their spirits.  This cute little kinglet flew so close to them that it nearly landed on Beth's hand several times!  Moon, always an avid birdwatcher herself, may have come back as this tiny kinglet to cheer them up.
