Golden Hour Spotlight

In the forest a small spotlight of sun shines through the trees and shines right on this beautiful Pine Warbler. I loved the perch that was covered completely in lichen and gave a nice light green color and wonderful added texture to the photo. In the quiet forest in the morning the loud song of the Pine Warbler is a lovely sound to me. I've photographed this species a lot already this year and I'll probably continue to do so as they are so common in my area and I always enjoy working with them.

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.
