Blackpoll Lookback

These Blackpoll warblers always seems to look cute in photos to me and this looking back pose really accentuates that in my opinion. The incredible dense fog has just started to clear out and allowed for some photos when the bird was really close. If I tried to capture the birds farther out you could barely see them. Thankfully this one landed on this closer perch and the soft light showed off all the details. I always enjoy capturing photos that have water drops hanging off all the branches and this great looking pine looks great with all the water. It was such a unique habitat to photograph these birds up around 4,000 elevation.

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.
