The New Store, The Sale, BAA Bulletin 289, Arrived at Pelee

[Not a valid template]
This male Yellow Warbler was photographed this afternoon at Pt. Pelee National Park, in Leamington, Ontario, Canada. Canon 800mm f/5.6L IS lens with the 1.4X II TC and the EOS-1D MIII. ISO 800. Evaluative metering +1 2/3 stops set manually: 1/320 sec. at f/9. Fill flash with Better Beamer at -3 stops.

After three straight 8 hour driving days, I arrived in Leamington on Thursday afternoon.  Today I walked about 5 miles with 20+ pounds of gear; made only the one good image above.  Several times my heart raced as I had a gorgeous male warbler, once a Cape May, and several times a Black-throated Green, right in my wheelhouse: on a clear perch at close range in nice light only to have the bird refuse to turn its head and then fly to a totally obstucted perch nearby.  Welcome to warbler photography!  You can of course click on the image above to see a larger version.  I did lots of work with this image to remove a foreground branch that intersected the bird’s body.

BIRDS AS ART is proud (at long last) to announce the opening of our new On-Line Store.  To learn more about the store and about the 10% off sale, check out BAA Bulletin #289 that is now on-line here:

Right now I gotta get to sleep as we are gonna try to make the first tram to The Tip again and hope for a fallout of migrant songbirds.
