[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Cape May warbler is such a beautiful bird with it's chestnut colored cheek patch, surrounded by vivid yellow neck markings and a heavy black streaked breast.

I saw quite a few of these colorful warblers this year while up at the Magee Marsh. It's funny how some years you may only see a few birds of a particular species and other years you will see large numbers.

I've noticed many times that Cape Mays seem to stay fairly high in the trees and rarely venture down to eye level. This can be a real challenge when trying to capture a decent image.

This will be my last photo for a while as I'm heading to Oklahoma this Friday to visit my youngest daughter and her family. I hope to have internet connections so I can keep up with other members postings.

Hi Ron,

Difficult and not easy shot, because there have an effect of light and shade.
But you managed it a splendid way, pretty plumage texture.
The details are gorgeous and stunning composition.
Congratulations, TFS.
My best regards.

Hi Ron.
It is a stunning shot by subject and by quality. Pictured species is amazing. Its colouration is wonderful as well as shapes. Crisp sharpness, vivid colours, composition of the image are spot on and impress the imagination. My warm congratulations and TFS.

I would have to say you got a very nice exposure despite the challenging light level not to mention the focus is sharp and crisp. Well done Ron. :)

An outstanding catch,very well composed and lovely colours.
Thanks for sharing,
Best regards....Joy
