Camera Critters #144

Several years ago, while walking through a nearby park, I noticed something moving around in a tree.

As I got closer, I realized the movement was being caused by a Yellow Warbler.  Having seen very few and never having got a good photo of one, I moved around the tree with the bird, capturing one image after another, hoping at least one would come out looking nice.

Well, I succeeded.
