Hello Michel,
This is one of those special birds that I always look forward to viewing during the spring migration up at Magee Marsh.
You have done a great job of capturing this particular fellow just as he takes flight. The colors are vivid yet natural and focus is very sharp. A nice clean BG along with that ever sought after twinkle in it's eye. Well done!!

WOW this doesn't look real..what a capture indeed..s w e e t!

Hi Michel,

Hello Michel

This is absolutely perfect timing and setting to freeze the action just before take off. The upward trajectory, the blur in the wings and perfect POV all coming together nicely for this nice little warbler.

Bonjour Michel,
Une jolie petite danseuse, ton oiseau coloré. Tu as appuyé juste au moment de son envol. Une image spéciale donc. Bel arrière-plan neutre pur mettre en évidence le beau plumage de la Paruline à tête cendrée.
