Yellow Warbler On The Hunt

Yves Langlois

Great warbler shot in its natural (bushes) surrounding. You got it in a nice lighted spot. A nightmare to focus but you did it right. Since they don't stay long at the same place it is a matter of focussing very fast. Well done.

Thank you Yves. No kidding.. it's quite the challenge to keep up with these little guys and try to keep in focus. Missed a few too.

Jenny Stevens

Nice to find this gorgeous bird in the foliage. Great you got the focus spot on.

Heather Mellon

Thank you Jenny. I missed a couple of perfect poses when my camera couldn't quite keep up.. but that's often the way it goes.

Debra Plett

Good job getting focus amongst the branches Heather. You have captured him in very nice lighting as well. Nice to hear numbers are going up, it’s a joy to watch and photograph the summer birds.

Heather Mellon

Thank you Debra.. They certainly are a joy to watch and photograph. It was challenging but a lot of fun too.

A Yellow Warbler gleans insects among the foliage of a Manitoba maple tree. I especially like to capture these birds as they go about their busy day. The Barn Swallows did not return to their usual nesting site but the Yellow Warbler numbers seem to have gone up considerably this year.
