More Dickcissel Portraits!

I returned to Pheasant Branch Conservancy yesterday evening, but the Dickcissels were perched in the middle of the field and too far from the trail to get pictures of them. I decided to try again this morning and this cooperative bird was singing mere feet away from me. He didn't seem to mind at all when I changed my position for different background composition. These may be the best images of this species I've ever captured and I'm very grateful for the opportunity!
