[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I took this photo while up at Magee Marsh this past week. The Prothonotary lights up the forest like a light bulb and is one of the most popular birds among birders to view.

Prothonotary Warblers migrate north from Central and South America up into the northeastern United States. Breeding in Swampy wooded areas these beautiful Warblers raise their young here in my state of Ohio.

Hi Ron,the different light levels on the bird gives a special effect to the composition. Absolutely lovely,and not easy to manage so well,an excellent work in PP too,to reduce the noise,i like it! Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano

Hi Ron,

A lovely image of the warbler..captured with the right level of exposure. The light & the shadow displayed gorgeously in your picture.

Thanks for sharing this beauty.

Warm Regards,

Beautiful Ron. You have come to be a pro after these short years. I dont usually like this color but in this image its briliant. Keep up good work.

Hello Ron
Une magnifique photo, les couleurs sont lumineuses.
Bonne netteté.
Bon W-E

Hello Ron,
Another beautiful coloured Warbler. Here I likeBG light and colours very much. Very nice exposure. Bit digital noise in the BG as well as hind portion of the bird ........ but not much disturbing.
Thanks and regards,

Hi Ron,

The branches are framing well the bird. The point of view is showing the details of the Prothonotary Warbler. The good luminosity is giving nice tints to the colours. Have a nice day.


Hi Ron,
Awesome color gamut, but probably you overcropped the image as the background's very noisy and the plumage of the bird seems oversharpened. Lights are gorgeous, though.
Kind regards, László
