Just returned from a 3 day trip to southern New Jersey to photograph a few new species. Cloudy and drizzle with "gale force " winds were challenging each day I was there, but fortunately the sun peeked through long enough that I was able to shoot this warbler where I was somewhat protected from the wind while in a wooded area.

Super pose and light on this Warbler. Looks like the trip was worth it Warren, despite the challenging conditions.
Make your life spectacular!

Nice singing pose captured. Like the pose and background. We had one for about a week, walking distance from my house.

300 miles for me, into the worst 3 day weather conditions I've ever encountered for Spring shooting.  By the way, great looking shot of the Prothonotary Warbler.  I was going to send one from my trip to NJ but you beat me to the punch, lol.  Terrific image.

a nice one and in the singing position, is't always a plus to have motion in the shot, sweet stuff WARREN.

Great singing pose and angle, was this at Cape May? I heard about the wind and that it caused major problems for many birds.

Wonderful image, Warren. Sorry to hear about the poor weather- just had six days of beautiful weather here in S. Ontario.

Yes.....it was in the Cape May area. I traveled around between Ocean City to Cape May and inland depending on the species of bird I was pursuing.

Despite the weather you managed to get a great shot. I love the light and the point of shot.

With the windy conditions you describe, you did well to get anything, Warren - let alone such a nice shot as this!
