Black-throated Blue Warbler
« on: June 26, 2012, 12:30:45 PM »

Here's one from my recent trip back to Ontario. This is one of my favourite warblers so I was really keen to try to photograph them this year. I found a great area for them. Unfortunately the mosquitoes were insane. I probably got about 100 bites on my face alone while trying to find and photograph this guy...totally worth it  :D

Yet another astounding image, Glenn. Knowing how warblers constantly flit about, how did you ever get it stay still long enough for a 1/80 exposure - and no blur or movement whatsoever!?!

Well done and thanks for sharing.

Nice. I love those guys. We get them in migration here, and see them often in the mountains of western North Carolina during the summer. Beautiful warblers.

The image is beautiful.
The technical info mind-boggling - 1/80s with effective focal length of 700mm and sharp as a tack.

Another great one Glenn.

Not only is it technically well done, but also asthetically. One or the other is difficult enough, but it takes an artist to get both parts right.

Bravo.

I've wondered the same thing, and come to the inescapable conclusion that all the birds are stuffed ...  ;)

Thank you. I am now wiping coffee from my monitor.
