As many of you who follow me know I love small in the frame images. This one bordered on too small even for me but I figured what the hell, lets share it. I actually think the bird stands out in this scene as it clings to the small open branch and I really like how the bright green leaves stand out from the very distant background. It does show plenty of habitat and I often found these birds up at the top of the tallest trees around singing their buzzy song. It was a special morning that I spent with these birds and if you might be interested in joining me for an incredible all day outing staring with this species check out my northern New Jersey tour.

Nature photography has become a very passionate hobby of mine and whenever I get a chance I love to get outside and enjoy being outdoors. I am also the co-owner of KGM Expressions, a wedding and portrait photography business, with my wife Kim. This is how we make our living and I love that we get to do that together.
