Canadian Warbler (Five Photographs)

 Canadian WarblerTo view more of my photography please click on

Who knew that Canada had its own warbler (and one that resembles Batman)? Walking along a path we met another photographer who pointed out the bird and said it had just been bathing in a stream. That explained the wild gyrations of the bird as it shook off the remaining water and why it did not immediately fly off. The majority of the warblers I have found were in dark spots where the light was filtered through leaves. You take your best shot and hope for the best (e.g. you try to address some of this in post-processing). In this case a levels adjustment in Photoshop helped. I was worried that the eyes were completely black but modest brightening improved things.

  3. Fantastic shots of a beautiful bird! I am amazed at the sharpness of your photos. For me, warblers have always been so difficult to photograph.

    • Believe me when I say that the majority are not sharp, despite my best efforts, I only keep those in focus and work from there. All my warblers were taken handheld, which also poses problems. Vibration control in the lens helps.

  6. Nice series. For me the first and last are special. I like the pose of the first and the detail in both but especially in the last.
