Small birds are sometime very difficult to identify especially for beginner like me. I thought this bird was an Orange-crowned Warbler, it turned out it is a Ruby-crowned Kinglet.
For a photographer, light means everything. It’s the difference between a very good shot or an average shot. In fact poor lighting conditions could really ruin what looks like something very beautiful especially with digital camera. You do not understand the importance of light in photography until you start taking some photos and experiment. These two photos were taken about one hour before sunset with a soft orange sunlight.
