Yet another unique opportunity on the grounds behind the Lodge. There was a pair of these Euphonia nesting toward the edge of the Lodge grounds, and again each of us set up and waited for the coming and going of these beautiful birds. With the bird and nest in relative shadow, and a much brighter background, flash was again needed to get a balanced exposure.
