Black Phoebe in Spring Cattails
There is a wonderful little wetland area near my home that sits right next to the highway. In spite of all the noise and commotion, there is an amazing amount of activity going on down near the water. I just love to sit down there and watch the birds go about their business as if the highway were a mile away. This Black Phoebe was flitting back and forth catching insects as I watched and I really liked this particular pose with the sunlight creating the lovely shadows on him and the surroundings reeds.
