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.
