Yellow in the Rain

Another from the all day in the rain outing was this lovely and bright Yellow Warbler who didn't seem the least bit bothered by the heavy rain and wind. He was bouncing around in the low brush in front of my friend and I. It landed on a lot of great perches, some a little distant like this one that gave a great sense of envirtonment and the rain and some closer and right near us. This was my first time working with a Yellow Warbler this season and it was a really great encounter with them. I really likd how the bird was framed in on this perch and you could easily see the heavy rain that was not fun to shoot in but worth it.
