    Default Palm Warbler in Autumn Setting.

    Attached Images Attached Images
     
    This year was lousy for fall shorebird migration, but to make up for it, fall warbler migration was decent. Always a trade-off! Here is one of many Palm Warblers that were roaming within the changing sumac leaves during a particularly productive day. The leaf at left almost looks like a "palm" too...

    Canon 7DII + 500mm f/4 II + 1.4TC III, manual exposure, evaluative metering, 1/1000s., f/5.6, ISO 1600, natural light, handheld, about 80% FF, the branch cutting behind the bird's head has been lightened (dodge tool), and a couple of small "imperfections" within the leaves repaired via spot removal tool. NR to the BG.

    Just love,love the color palette here.
    The BG acts as a really nice foil to the plainer warbler but matches the yellow vent nicely.
    As always, good IQ and processing.
    This is nice as presented but I could see a version with the stem curving behind the tail removed,

    Lovely fall colors, and nice cooperative pose from the warbler.

    Gotvtonlove bthe Fall colors here Dan and a good look at the palm warbler. It's difficult to frame a small bird amidst the many branches but this is very nice.

    Daniel, glad to hear of the abundance of Warblers!

    Tons of color here, wow. Your typical high IQ subject, perhaps you could've stopped down here just a touch to get the whole bird?

    BKG is a touch busy for my taste but how do you not love that bright fall colored foliage?! Gail's suggestion may really help.

    Hi Dan the bird really pops against the colourful BG, though its a bit busy it doesn't bother me. Nice details and sharpness.

    Wild fall colors, almost overpowers the bird but a great fall photo.
