Yellow Warbler by Brad James

Kelligrews, Newfoundland Yesterday morning I was on a mission to capture images of Yellow Warblers before work but my time was limited. I headed to a location approximately 10mins from my home where the previous evening my family and I spotted our first Yellow Warbler of the year. As the sun began to rise the thick clouds separated and beautiful warm light painted the area...but any effort to photograph the Yellow Warbler was failing...I decided to ditch the location and drive 10mins back towards my home to another location that has been very successful for me in terms of song birds. The light was popping off and couldnt believe I was driving during such conditions...only mins after arriving at my second location thick clouds moved in and sheets of rain began to fall. My heart sank; as I made my way back to my vehicle... feeling defeated I waited for nearly a half an hour in my vehicle and finally the rain let up. Just as I was about to get out of my vehicle I spotted this Yellow Warbler resting under the canopy of this spruce tree. I quiclly grabbed a few frames and to my surprise when I reviewed my shots I noticed a rain covered spiders web in the right hand corner. This shot made my day
