Over here is my buddy.


Palm Warbler


Spots anyone?


Yellow-rump Warbler. I rather like the CA in the background.


Hiding, but not too well.

Nice series I like them all, thing is birds dont stay still ... makes for a challenge to get framing and compostion just right ... taken a few bird shots its a tough call.

looks to be a quiet place away from busy world ... nice...

Steve, these are some excellent captures IMO. I like the captions, especially the first one.

Yeah? Well someone in flickr posted the caption they would have used in their comment and all I could think is Why Didn't I think of that?

Their caption. He did it!

Thanks for commenting, and thanks also John.

Great captures Steve. A nice variety of birds. The first shot is hilarious with both captions.
The composition and DOF on the warbler are outstanding.

Hi Happy Peasant

1st and 3rd for me.
Grat compo and poses in the fisrs, although the water has a strange NR effect.

Some CA in the other ones, and loist detail in plumages, although the 3rd is rellay fine: it would benefit of a better PP

Nice ones Steve!! I am in a new (rental) house now with almost no backyard so I am not seeing very many birds to shoot. In other words, I am envious of you.:-)

Thanks for comments tinosa, narmer, Ted. Ted, I hope you find good things to photograph in new house or adjoining areas. And narmer, the strange effect in the water isn't noise reduction, it is what Elements 4.0 thinks proper contrast for Lake Michigan is when I do auto contrast. Usually I ignore it, although when I am doing terns I work around it because for some reason it does the same thing to them. I didn't even notice the color shift behind the starling until you mentioned it. Unless the branches are glaring the only time I worry too much about CA is when it is on the bird itself.

First one is my favorite.

In Orlando this my favorite time of year all the birds from up north start migrating andshowing up. The light is more friendly for shooting around mid day.
