This cute little Chipping Sparrow was pulling seeds right out of this Dandelion flower. I slowly crawled in and got this shot with the bird holding some of the seeds and the soft glow of the sun on the sparrow and the flower.

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.
