19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Gray, yellow and white bird in blossoms

I have a large flower and vegetable garden on my 3 acre property on Whidbey Island, Washington. I enjoy sitting quietly with my camera ready and seeing what nature brings to me. I chased this Yellow Rumped Warbler for a long time before a clear shot suddenly came up. It had spent all morning eating bugs that were landing on the blossoms of my plum tree. I slightly cropped the photo to center the bird in the frame.
