Wilson's Warbler by Jamie-MacArthur Wilson's Warbler by Jamie-MacArthur
These little guys can't half move and unfortunately I walked into a wasps hive trying to anticipate his moves to get this shot. 4 wasp stings later and here it is ;-) still worth it ;-)

This is simply STUNNING. I love the greens (naturally) and the focus is amazing! I also love the wide eyes and sloped forehead which give the bird an extremely innocent expression.

Indeed, my very first heart-warming wildlife experience was in the first grade. We were on a school trip out in the woods, and I sat down to enjoy my lunch. After I while I felt something crawling all over me, and I realized I had seated myself next to an anthill, oh the joy! ;P
Jokes aside, I've been fascinated and interested by nature and animals ever since preschool. When did your interest for animals and photography start?

lol - it started as a kid around 3 when I found frogs in my garden, but I didn't get my first camera until I was 16.
