Yellow Bird

Yellow Safron Finch feeding off of the dew of a seeding palm tree.

Every morning these yellow birds dance around the palm trees outside my window. I have attempted to photograph them many, many times, but they are often too far away to get a good shot with my 300mm lens. This time the branches we dangling towards my window. Now I just had to be patient and wait for the birds to be brave enough to come close to me. I think I waited around 20 minutes until this bird arrived.

I wanted to frame the bird off center so I can show the design of the palm branches as they blew in the wind.
