Cape May Warbler - New Providence Island, Bahamas
a7R III, 100-400mm @ 400mm, ISO 1250, f/5.6, 1/1000s

Walking around on the grounds of my hotel after dinner one night I spotted very briefly this little Cape May Warbler.  The next morning, armed with the longest focal length I had with me, I wet to try to find him and got this shot which I had about 1 second to frame and shoot...

Nice-looking warbler. I like the level of light and the colors work real well with the background. Excellent depth of field. Nice texture on the perch.

A sweet little warbler in a lovely setting. Beautiful complementary colours.

The perch pretty large for the bird but you take what you get...
Beautiful species.

Lovely warbler species, I like the inclusion of a bit more space for the environs and to show off the nice dabbled light. Cool photo!
