[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Imagine going to a place where you can see 30 species of Warblers all in the same day. No enclosures to keep them in, just a little over 2,000 acres of the great outdoors, this is what Magee Marsh is all about.

Located on the shores of Lake Erie about 150 species of song birds migrate through each year, including 36 species of Warblers. This past Saturday was one of those unbelievable days when it seemed like everyone was spotting their favorite birds at least once during the day.

I was fortunate to capture this beautiful Black-throated Blue Warbler while it was singing it's heart out. These little warblers are always a favorite of the thousands of birders that visit the marsh every year.

This is a fantastic picture of a lovely Warbler, Ron.
You guys are lucky to come across such a wide range of Warblers at this time of the year.
This is one of the most adorable Warblers I have ever seen. The singing pose in which you have captured it is just beautiful.

Hello Ron

Beautiful close-up photo of this Black-throated Blue Warbler
with fine POV and photo shot at the best moment
of the pose while the bird was singing,
the catch-light always enhance the photo
rendering it more beautiful, TFS


Hello Ron,
A fascinating photo with a lovely bird. Sharp details, very nice natural colors and perfect POV. As usual a excellent image. Here in my county the summer has arrived with high temperatures.....The butterflies are almost everywhere, not very much time for taking pictures....

Excellent shot with great sharpness and perfect details

Hi Ron,
Really very nice portrait of a beautiful bird.
Excellent colours, detail and focus.
Regards Jiri.

i know how tough it is to photograph black and/or white in a bird.. and here, you have got that classic combination and handled so well! good job, Ron. the plumage has come to be normal.. i remember my Oriental Magpie Robin.. and how badly i failed. given a second chance, am going to do better. but for that i need to go to India :)
someday :)
also a well captured mood.. perfect timing :)
the partly blurred BG gives a 3D effect. good job.

Hello Ron!
How are you my friend??? Hope you are super!!!
Nice pic!Great sharpness...I almost can listen the bird!!!! Bravo!!!
Thanks fr sharing! Thanks also for visiting my gallery! I appreciated it!
Nice w-end!

Bonjour Ron,

A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
