Radiant Warblers

In the Midwest, the month of February is typically frigid, cloudy and gray. As we shiver and shovel through the winter season, I offer these warbler images with hope that they will brighten your day.

  7. Beautiful series of photos Julie. You show great composition and your one line descriptions are beyond average. Is creativity part of what you do? Writer? Advertising?
