[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
May brings in a good variety of warblers. This yellow warbler was high up in the birches catching caterpillars.
Warblers are tiny, fast moving birds, flitting from one branch to the next as they catch insects.

Hello Debbie,
This is one of my favorite warblers to view in the springtime, but also one of the most challenging to photograph. They are so bright yellow that I find it difficult to get the correct exposure without overexposing and losing detail.
You have done a fine job of photographing this particular male as he searches for insects among the branches and leaves.

Hi Debbie. I would kill to get a good shot of a Yellow Warbler like this one. He looks larger than normal because he's stretched out. Like you say; they're a fast moving bird. You're lucky you got a shot. It's nicely framed in a great environment. Colours and light are especially good. Just a wonderful Spring bird. TFS Trevor
