After working around the yard for the better part of the day, I decided to take a break. I sat on a lawn chair in my yard hoping to capture some birds drinking from my bird bath when this bright little yellow bird caught my eye. It was hopping from branch to branch on the Holly Tree, consuming insects. What a pleasant surprise to see and enjoy taking pics of this little vibrant visitor in my own back yard!
