Tall Grass | Common Yellowthroat | New York
Warblers are some of the most brilliant and beautiful birds.
They are also some of the most challenging to get a look at. Never mind a decent photo.
Common Yellowthroats fit right into that category.
When I see a Common Yellowthroat it is usually as they dart through some bushes or underbrush.
Contently in motion is the Common Yellowthroat.
I don’t see them too often. I am able to capture a photo of a Common Yellowthroat even less frequently.
Then I am able to create an image of a Common Yellowthroat that I really like and that turned out well even more seldom.
I was treated with a beautiful opportunity to photograph the Common Yellowthroat this year out at Montezuma National Wildlife Refuge in New York.
There was a great moment, and tha’s all it was a moment or moments, where some Common Yellowthroats appeared and moved alonmg the tall grasses at the refuge. And the Common Yellowthroats actually stayed in sight.
