Pic of the Day

     Magnolia Warbler – Magee Marsh, Ohio:  If you been following the blog you know that I have been at Magee Marsh on the south shore of Lake Erie photographing migrating birds.  This image is a sing male magnolia warbler.  Magee is a great place to get close to the birds, but the backgrounds can be tough.  This image was taken as the bird moved through the bushes a eye level, but out-of-focus branches create real distractions.  I used a shallow depth-of-field to minimize the distractions.  In this case it helps, and creates a pleasing image. 

Nikon D7000, Nikkor 500mm f4, 1/200second @ f8, fill flash (approx. 12 feet from subject)
