I photographed this Scissor-tailed Flycatcher Singing at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma.

How I Got The Photo:

I got lucky and spotted this bird near the auto tour road. The difficult part was driving close enough without scaring it. I would take a few photos and then pull forward.

I had my camera resting on a bean bag draped over the open window of my pickup.
