Pic 4 Today : Magnolia Warbler
I was pretty much tethered to my table at the Optics Alley at Black Swamp Bird Observatory yesterday (it is after all my job), but when my shutter finger got irresistibly twitchy, I did manage to sneak across the road to the little stand of swampy woods there, and found a few Warblers to shoot. In one willow, just twice my hight, there were Cape May, Nashville, Townsends, and this lovely Magnolia...all foraging at eye-level or just above. There is nowhere in the world like this stretch of the Erie Shore in May!
Olympus OM-D E-M10 with 75-300mm zoom. 600mm equivalent. Shutter preferred. 1/800th @ ISO 640 @ f6.7. Processed in Snapseed on my tablet. Cropped for scale.#birdpoker
