Real Treat For Me

Photographing warblers is a really special for me because being insect eaters they rarely will come to bird feeders. They do however like water so whenever I build a water set up there is a good chance one of them will come for water. On Wednesday last week I was really excited when a Townsend's Warbler came in for a drink and a bath. They are such a beautiful bird. Townsend's prefer the the Evergreen forests of the Pacific Northwest migrating in the fall down the California coast and then into central Mexico. What a real treat to photograph this bird. Here are three images from a series of images I photographed over about a five minute period of time. Enjoy your day with God's blessings upon you, chris All images were created with a Canon 7D and a Canon 100-400 IS lens on a Manfrotto tripod. Exposures varied. If you are interested in creating a water set up like this one please check out the book, Secrets of Backyard Bird Photography", where step by step directions are provided to show how to build a water set up. The book is available in both hardbound and as an ebook at Amazon and most anywhere fine books are sold.
