Sweet, Sweet, Sweet

Uploaded: May 26, 2006


Taken a few seconds after my "Sounds of Spring" image, I think this one has better lighting and detail. Amazing what sunlight and a minute breeze can do to an image. Exp was also adjusted to -2/3 compensating for the stronger sunlight. Prothonotary Warblers sing a song that sounds like it is whistling "sweet, sweet, sweet..." hence the title.
