It wasn't easy to photograph this Tropical Gnatcatcher (Polioptila plumbea) as I was trying for years to capture at least one of them. But since they are small active birds during the day and seldom sit still at one place I failed over and over again. Especially since they also like the top of high trees as well. Luckily for me this one was sitting a bit lower and after several missed attempts I finally got my first photo of a Tropical Gnatcatcher. In the end well worth the long wait.
