This shot was taken at Ball’s Falls, near Hamilton; much as I would love to claim that I deliberately got the soon-to-be-lunch insect in the shot, that would be a complete lie, alas – I was only trying to get a decent shot of the bird (the blighters move very fast) and got lucky!

According to my bird-book, this is a Golden-Crowned Kinglet (Regulus satrapa), which are very common, although you don’t see them as much as you might expect – they tend to spend a lot of their time up in the canopy.
