Today’s post features a hungry, Cape May warbler as it seeks out and captures an insect that is hiding among the crevices of a tree trunk (also captured at Magee Marsh in north Ohio).
In the first image, the warbler is stretched out, as it zeroes in on an insect:
In this next image, you can barely see the insect (a May fly?) in his mouth:
Below is a radically enlarged image (well beyond good resolution), showing the insect:
Coming up … more warblers and a few other subjects.
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 1600 (all images)
- 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 1/1000 sec. (all images)
