[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Magnolia Warblers are always a welcoming sight at the Magee Marsh. Their brightly colored yellow breast with black streaks running through it, make them stand out vividly in the spring foliage.

This particular little male seemed intent on getting his picture taken as he gladly posed for this shot. These are very active warblers as they flit about from limb to limb in search of insects. Occasionally one will work his way low enough in order for you to get a decent photo.

Hello Ron,
This is a superb close capture of this beautiful Warbler, the Magnolia. The turned head pose and frontal POV show its features with top class sharpness and colours and the focusing is spot on.

Hello Ron,
what a beautiful and cute puffy warbler. You have composed it very well in excellent sharpness and well retained natural colours.
Very attractive small bird and a dramatic view is shown through shallow depth.
Really beautiful and congratulations.

Hallo Ron
This is a great shot. The colours are so vivid and the perspective excellent. Very good, sharp details and lovely composition. The colours in the bird’s feathers are really very beautiful. Very well done and thanks for sharing. Best regards.

What a cool little warbler Ron, great catch!
Great focus where it counts, love that breast pattern & yellow/black combo.
Like the broken white eye ring and the way it flares back on the top too :)

Hi Ron,

Some thing that really impressed me, beauty of this bird and the sharpness with composition, here what I miss to see the tool or instrument used that I mean the lens, superb shot, TFS.


The angle is different, but I like it. Such detail is wonderful to see on a bird that I've never seen.
