Today’s post features one of the many migrating warbler species I photographed recently at the Magee Marsh Wildlife Area, in northern Ohio, the Magnolia Warbler. The Magnolia warbler is one of my favorite warblers to see. I love the beautiful black “streaks” on the yellow chest … such a wonderful contrast of colors!
Here are a few of my favorite images of the Magnolia Warbler, captured on the first day at Magee Marsh:
All of these images were captured on the first day at Magee Marsh. Coming up … more warbler species photographed at Magee Marsh!
Photographic Equipment Used:
- Canon 7D Mark 2 body
- Canon 100-400mm, f/4.5-5.6 IS lens, all shot at 400mm
- Handheld, with IS “On”
- ISO 500 (top image), 800 (image #2-#3), and ISO 1600 (bottom image)
- Aperture f/5.6 (all images). Due to the frequent and sudden movements that warblers exhibit, a high ISO was required to assure any movement was “frozen”.
- Shutter 1/80 sec. thru 1/640 sec.
