It's always nice to spend some time with Cerulean Warblers. Their unique blue colors make them stand out from the crowd as far as warblers go and it also always stands out nicely against a bright green background. I have a few photos from my time with these birds the other day but this one really stood out because of the vertical thorny perch and the fun pose the bird gave me.

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.
