The photographer: David Masch of Lincoln

Behind the lens: This photo was taken in April at the Salton Sea, the largest lake in California. It is south of Palm Springs. I was visiting the headquarters of the Sonny Bono Wildlife Refuge. I had just stepped outside the door and the Western Tanager landed on a limb about 10 feet in front of me. I took about 50 shots while the bird hopped around the tree. I was truly in the right place at the right time. I am an avid bird photographer and never saw one of these before.
