I went for a hike today around our neighborhood greenbelt and pond. I came across this white-throated sparrow, who posed just long enough for me to raise the camera, focus and press the shutter. It’s a rare thing for me to have the sun at my back when I try to get an unexpected shot off.
It’s a pretty bird, with an even prettier song.
By the way, “lifer” just means it is a first in my lifetime sighting of the species.
