17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Singing the Blues

I captured this little songbird (a Black Phoebe) perched upon a tombstone at a cemetery. I really like the way the dark blue background adds contrast to this beautiful bird. Because of where he is (a cemetery, along with the blue background), I thought he must be singing the blues.
