Pine Warbler Stare

One of the more amusing looks I've captured of a Pine Warbler this year was this male clinging to pine needles at the very top of a short pine tree and the near head on look. It appears as though it is angrily staring down at the camera. I really like how you can see its feet clinging to just the needles and not the branch, which really shows how light these birds are. Taken in southern New Jersey.

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.
