[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I have been up to Magee Marsh that last three days trying to photograph birds during the spring migration. This brightly colored Scarlet Tanager was a last minute shot as I was heading back to the car.

A group of people were standing along the beach of Lake Erie staring up into the trees. I heard one fellow say "there it is" as he pointed to the top most branches. I looked up in time to see this guy fly a short distance to another tree. I quickly took aim and pressed the shutter, hoping for the best.

I will be heading back up to the marsh Monday and Tuesday for some more birding. Magee Marsh gets a lot of visitors from all over the country during the spring migration. There are also many people from other countries who come to the marsh to see the many birds which stop over before heading north through Canada.

Hallo Ron
Only one word can describe this fabulous image with its pretty selection of colours BEAUTIFUL. The sunny feeling in the image is contagious. Everything is pleasant to look at. Kind regards and thanks for sharing.

Bonsoir Ron,
Très bon angle de prise de vue pour valoriser le sujet en favorisant son opposition sur l'arrière-plan.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
