As it gets later in the spring season some forests start to come alive with flowering shrubs. Seeing the beautiful pink Mountain Laurel flowers in the deep green forest looks great. Getting a photo of this brilliant Prothonotary Warbler on those flowers is about as good as it gets for me. This isn't my favorite Prothonotary Warbler photo I've taken but I do really like how it looks with the pretty pink flowers and that fun sideways pose its giving in this shot. I hadn't really had any photos of this species I loved this year, which is usually a bird I get to photograph a lot each year, it took a while but I finally have one I love this year. The next image I'll share of this species is my favorite of it from this year.
