Male Pine Grosbeak on a Lichen Covered Branch

This is another image from my trip to New Hampshire and surrounding states. As with my last post, this image was photographed at a bird feeder not far into Maine. Pine Grosbeaks have always been a favorite bird of mine, and getting to spend some quality time with this guy was a real treat. He landed several feet from me at one point, and it was a real highlight of the trip. In this image, I set up the perch on an old tripod and angled it to utilize the clean background consisting of a distant lake and mountains.
