Yellow-throated Warbler

Long story short, I broke my left (thank God) wrist on my way down to Texas, and until I get the more protective hard cast, I'm pretty much under House Arrest; thankfully, my wife has channeled her inner Alan Murphy and turned our tiny RV lot into an outdoor nature photo studio.  This guy comes around every day.

100-400 4.5-5.6 L IS II
f/5.6, 1/800, ISO 400
Eval -.67
Hand held, natural light

Comments and suggestions welcome.
Good light,

Sorry to hear about your misfortune Craig, but glad to hear of the sterling support and activity from your wife.  Great stuff.  You never know what life manages to kick up, and I'd guess there are lots of us with stories to tell.  

Superb shot and framing, with the large view a real treat.
Make your life spectacular!

Lovely shot. We had one in my City this year and I walked there four times and got lucky twice.(Was hard to park around the place)

I'm sorry to hear that you broke your wrist, and hope you will recover quickly. Nice that you have these little visitors around, and this warbler looks great.

Very unfortunate for you with your bad wrist, Craig- you did very well in taking an excellent image, under I'm sure what are difficult conditions- hopefully ,seeing this attractive warbler everyday, will make things a little more enjoyable, until you recover .

Ouch! So soriry to hear that, Craig. A supportive and caring partner is worth their weight in gold. I sincerely hope you make a speedy and good recovery, and I selfishly look forward to more lovely wildlife images from you. Meanwhile, this is a beautiful capture of your little visitor - especially as you are compromised in your two handed functions.
