21st Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Songbird in the garden

I had spent a morning at the local Ornamental Gardens taking photos of monarch butterflies that often enjoy the flowers there. I was preparing to leave and noticed a white-throated sparrow singing away while perched in a bush next to the parking lot. The warm colours of the flowers in the background caught my eye as I took this photo.
