bird photography : common yellowthroat

There's little 'common' about the Common Yellowthroat.  Several of this lovely little bird frequent the marshy brusy alongside the boardwalk at Huntley Meadows Park.

Photography Notes:
The only thing John could have asked for in this photo would have been for the Yellowthroat to be in mid-song. The bird perched on a cattail that gave a good background for bokeh, landed close enough for John to fill the frame with the shot, and caught just the right bit of sun.
