Wilson's Warbler, Kenai Peninsula, Alaska
A Wilson's Warbler perches on a leafy branch in the Chugach National Forest on the Kenai Peninsula in Alaska, a small insect clutched in its beak.
With its distinctive yellow breast and green back, this warbler is a common sight in many North American forests.
As the summer sun beats down, the Wilson's Warbler seems perfectly at home in the lush surroundings, its bright eyes and lively demeanor a sign of its joy in the warm weather.
The warbler's sharp eyes and quick reflexes allow it to easily spot and capture insects, which make up a large part of its diet.
