19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
A Pine Siskin enjoying a steam bath.

Overnight temperatures dipped below freezing and turned the water in our bird bath into ice. My wife replaced the ice with some warm water, which immediately attracted some pine siskins that were feeding nearby. The sunrise was backlighting the scene and highlighting the steam coming off the water.
