This was one of my half dozen target birds while visiting southern NJ a week ago.  There are only two Tanagers that reside in the northeast US and since I've photographed the Scarlet Tanager in the past, I wanted to see if I could also photograph a Summer Tanager. This was one of my favorite images of the Summer Tanager from NJ.

Beautiful image and perfect colour harmony with plumage and newly opening leaf buds! What a treat.
