A nice looking Seaside Sparrow perched in just the right spot in the really soft morning sunlight. I loved how clean the grasses look and the smooth green really helped the bird stand out and show off the fresh plumage.

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.
