[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is another shot of the same individual. Having recently arrived from Africa, it was so intent on looking for insects that I was able to take photos at a distance of less than 4 meters.

This time he momentarily puffed up his feathers, which substancially altered his shape compared to my first shot of him posted a little while back.

Wood Warblers (Phylloscopus sibilatrix) do not nest in Turkey, so he has yet to cross the Turkish mountains to reach his destination somewhere in Eastern Europe.

They are widespread in most of Europe and breed in deciduous woodland areas where there is a good mixture of shade and glades rich in low vegetation and insects. The nest is hidden on the ground.

This shot was only slightly cropped and sharpened after size reduction. No noise reduction was carried out.

Hi Ivan,
Excellent shot of the wood warbler. Lovely colours and sharp details. I like its 'waiting' and 'attentive' pose. perfect lighting and exposure. BG is superb. Very nicely composed. Kudos.

Hi Ivan, wonderful bird in great pose, splendid light and colors, excellent focus, very well done, a great week end to you, ciao Silvio

In addition to the cute posture you have captured the bird in, your image of this Warbler is excellent in other respects too, Ivan.
The details and colours on the bird are very sharp and clear. The image does not require any noise removal treatment.
Thanks and take care.

I really like this one. Outstanding technical qualities. Razor sharp focus producing fine detail in plumage. Excellent exposure showing soft natural beautiful colors of warbler. Gereat pose of subject. Nice blurred background. Excellent POV.

Nice sharp shot, sharp details of plumage makes a lot in bird pictures. It looks like the little guy was moving his head too much and that has caused slight blur from his neck and up, this has tranformed the pic to an action shot.

Hello Ivan,
This is such a sweet bird and a very nice capture of it. This is so close. The ones we have here are always hidden in trees and move so fast that they are very difficult to photograph.

Details, exposure, POV and pose from the bird are beautiful! This really is a great shot of a very nice specie; congratulations!
