16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Proud Prairie

Prairie Warbler - The Trail to Davey's Pond, Higbee Beach WMA, Cape May, New Jersey I spotted this guy about 50 feet out, and every time I was about to press off a shot it would fly. But to my amazement it flew closer each time, and then when it was at my MFD (minimum focus distance, about 20 feet), it sat and allowed me to make a number of captures.
