I needed a photo for our blog, so I went out to photograph some Palm Warblers I saw by our woodland edge. By the time I had gotten there, they had flown away and I had no luck. Just as I was about to leave, this lovely Common Yellowthroat female popped up and allowed me to photograph her. Photographic serendipity!
As the lyrics to the Rolling Stones song goes, "you can't always get what you want...but if you try sometime, you find, you get what you need."
