Description: The lighting was intriguing and challenging by the time I found this bird, and I stood up to my knees in underbrush for several hours as I watched and waited for just the right pose. It was prime habitat for ticks as well as warblers, and I actually contracted Lyme disease in the process of capturing this image.
