|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|I don't know the name of this bird, but it really caught my attention. They are fast little critters, so finally, I set the ISO on 400. As I was headed back to my friends house, I saw a tree that had a lot of movement. They blended in with the tree so well, especially among the pines (that is correct, right?) that they were hard to see.|
I waited five minutes, took several shots, and not a single one came out. That did it, I got mad. When that happens, I refuse to leave until I have one that is good enough that somebody else will be able to identify it.
There were many of them and they spook very easily - or they were playing with me - who knows?
Regardless, does anybody know what this is? Oh, and for what it's worth, I had the game warden get back to me today - we'll set him on the right track so I hope he nails those poachers!

I would say this is a female Yellow-rumped Warbler. You've captured her very nicely in the pine tree. The blue sky is a nice contrast to the little bird. Well done.
Lovely lighting and bright colours.
The setting with the pine needles and brilliant blue sky is lovely.
Well focused with sharp detail.
Nicely seen and captured,

Beautiful image Kathy,
I believe Janice is right on her ID. Love the sharpness and detail you've captured. Great exposure and wise choice of ISO speed.
I tried to get some shots of these little guys this past spring and your right, they don't hold still for very long.

Your patience paid off. Very clear capture of the warbler against the bright blue sky. Good detail of the tree as well.

You have captured a nice light in your photo. In this strong light the texture of the pine bark looks similar with bird's plumage pattern. Colors are well rendered beeing vivid and natural looking.
Thank you for sharing,
