The Yellow Warbler (Dendroica petechia), is not a permanent resident of west Texas. They only make occasional appearances here during migration. For that reason, I felt lucky to get to see this one at San Angelo State Park, back in September of 2009. I was sitting in the blind there when it flew in and entertained me and Ann for a few minutes.
Back then I still owned my Canon EOS 40D. I used my Canon 100-400mm zoom lens, hand-held. Exposure was 1/500 sec. @ f6.3 with ISO 400, aperture priority.
These birds are such a delight…Once again you have out done yourself..love the both shots.
Thanks so much, Syl.
Really pretty photos. It’s always a treat to see warblers, isn’t it?
It certainly is, Linda. I appreciate your compliments. 🙂
Very beautiful Bob!
Thanks a bunch, Mia. 🙂
Nature sure has provided us with a multitude of colorful birds. Super!!!
She, (Mother Nature), sure has. Thanks, David. 🙂
Thank you very much.
These are beautiful poses, what’s your secret to get such great shots. It’s not your gear. 🙂
You’re right, it is not my gear. Just being patient, I guess, waiting and hoping for the bird to sit in the right place. 🙂 Thanks for the complimnt, Martina. 🙂
It’s a very very pretty bird, isn’t it? Wow, I love the color. In the first shot, it looks like the bird is just about to take its flight. And then, perhaps, it thought – Well, better sit here and pose. Hehe. 😀
Love these photos, Bob. 🙂
Thank you very much, Nandina. I appreciate your comment. 🙂
