Pic of the Day

     Common Yellowthroat Warbler – Magee Marsh, Ohio:  Another one of the many warblers I saw along the boardwalk at Magee Marsh.  As mentioned in a previous post, the birds at Magee are fearless, often moving so close that I had to back-up to get a shot.  Although this image is cropped, the bird was within the minimum focus distance of my lens requiring the use of extension tubes to get this close-up. 
I love shooting the warblers, and I am already looking forward to next spring!
