Species: Male Plumbeous Water Redstart | Location: Tanjiahe Park, China
While visiting China with Nat Hab, I was hanging out on the hotel grounds after lunch, looking for some birds. I noticed that birds tended to go to one spot for baths, so I worked my way around the water to get closer. Mostly female birds were bathing. Then I noticed a male on a rock, waiting for his turn. I re-positioned for the sun and better background, and was able to get the shot.

About The Photographer
I'm a world traveler who has been traveling the globe for the past 15 years, visiting places that are being most impacted by global warming. My initial photography interest was in macros of plants and flowers, but once I obtained a longer lens, I became an avid wildlife photographer. I enjoy visiting off-the-beaten-path places and capturing images of the flora and fauna. I also enjoy sharing these images and experiences with others through my web site and personal presentations.
