Migrants crossing Lake Erie find Point Pelee a haven of rest. Some arrive exhausted making them easy to approach and photograph. The second and third week of May is perhaps the best time to see warblers, tanagers and grosbeaks in their breeding plumage.
This Black-throated Green Warbler was photographed near the tip, foraging in the brambles along the lakes edge. Using a long lens and extension tubes, I was able to shoot a frame-filling image.
