15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Black Phoebe's Hindsight

After GRABBING my attention, this Black Phoebe landed on a nearby branch and turned as if to say... "Go ahead... I'll wait. Get a good shot." I got three pictures before it launched again to entertain the next nature lover. One was blurry, one was only the back of its head. This one was the third... and clearly the one he was waiting for.
