#BiggestWeek Prothonotary Warbler
Prothonotary Warbler: Magee Marsh Boardwalk, Oak Harbor, Ohio, USA, May 2022 — the Prothonotary Warner is probably my favorite warbler to see on the Erie Shore in Ohio in May…partly because they are such a beautiful bird, and partly because we don’t get them in Maine. This is not a “field guide shot” of the warbler…but it has that certain something that lifts it out of the ordinary portrait class. It is a perfect demonstration of my wildlife photography mantra: right place, right time, and ready! It is also a testimony to the Sony Rx10iv’s focus ability. Auto focus. 600mm. Program mode with my custom birds and wildlife modifications. Processed in Pixelmator Photo and Apple Photos. ISO 160 @ f4 @ 1/500th.
