Vermilion Flycatcher (male)

May 5th, 2008, seetharam

I was out in the field on Saturday with wildlife photographer Steven Metildi. Steve has a great set of wildlife photographs on his website. Please check. I especially love his puffin images from Alaska.

We drove through Sonoran Desert for several hours and photographed desert wildlife. We arrived at Morongo Valley located near Palm Desert during later part of the day to photograph strikingly beautiful Vermilion Flycatcher.

This bird was so hard to photograph. He would not land on my custom perch. I ended up photographing him on a dead tree branch. Here is a snap from the session.
