Palm Warbler crankin it!

5 posts in this topic

The warblers are starting to really push through the Duluth area now. Here is one from 5/6/09. SonyA300, Tokina400mm, iso 400, f10, 1/500, tiny crop from the left hand side, actually this is a bit too tight for my taste but the singing pose was killer so there you go, levels adjustment, USM. Had I used flash here I probably could have gotten rid of the strong branch shadow on the bird's crown.....Comments and critiques always welcome, thanks for looking and regards,

Shawn Zierman.

!!! I don't understand why they are so much earlier on the eastern side of the state! I have seen yellow rumps and the kinglets have gone through, but otherwise it is still a bit slow. I love the background for this little diva. It picks up the exact coloring of her feathers. So does the little bud below her/him. Planned I'm sure. A perfect pose, too. Branch shadows are the story of my life.

Nice shot. I havn't seen any yet in Sauk Rapids area but that doesn't mean they aren't here. I can't see the grape jelly in the fridge sometimes!
