General Information
The Orange Crowned Warbler (Vermivora celata) is a resident of Central America, extreme southeastern North America and coastal western North America. It's most distinguishing field mark is its lack of distinguishing field marks! It is more commonly seen in the western than in eastern North America. It's breeding range extends across Canada, Alaska and the western USA. Each year in central Indiana, we see a few or these as they migrate between their breeding and wintering grounds.

Very beautiful image of this warbler, nicely forcus through layers of branches. Good composition, beautiful and natural setting for such photo.

Hola Luis, últimamente sin ver tu galería, suerte que me votaste. A veces pasa que se va perdiendo el contacto aunque al final uno u otro aparece jajaja.
Esa foto tiene una luminosidad increíble y quedó muy artística con esas ramas. Buena poose del ave y casi toda ella en foco. Preciosa.
Yo tengo la 400D mal, tres averías en su primer año y en la tercera reparación de garantía me la han dejado que no enfoca bien. De paso se me ha roto un sigma 18-50 f:2,8, ya no se que hacer... Dios proveerá jeje.
Un abrazo: J. Ignasi

Hola amigo,
A fine capture of this rather dull-looking warbler, the Orange-crowned. You have produced a very attractive composition by framing the warbler with the dried stems and the POV is very attractive against the neutral BG.
Gracias por compartirla y un abrazo grande!

Pretty photo of this Warbler amongst.
I think the yellowish green plumage contrasts perfectly with the orange-red of the plant and it gives a would-be-normal shot a touch of originality.
The image quality is impeccable as always.
Nice composition that brings the bird's centre-of-gravity to the centre of the photo.
Excellent DOF that has blurred the BG very well and pin-point focusing that must have been pretty hard through all the surrounding plants.
Very informative note.
Well done Luis!
