One of my first trips to northern New Jersey this past spring was one of the rainiest days I shot in all year. It was a giant pain in the ass but the resulting photos were totally worth the effort and work put in that day. I composed this vertically specifically to include the entire branch the bird was perched on. It also helped to show more of the raindrops against the smooth background.
