  2. Outstanding photos, I especially like the first one, wow. I imagine for that last one you were standing in water up to your knees! 🙂

    • Thanks Jet! Luckily there was a bridge nearby and I could zoom, so I didn’t have to get into the water 🙂

    • It’s my fave too. But was so happy I found the other warblers so decided to post those pictures as well. 🙂

  6. Thats a superb set, I really like the first two shots of the Whitethroat … excellent work.

  7. My favorite is the second one, though they all are wonderful. Warblers are tough to photograph, because you can see them, but they are so often hidden in the leaves, high up in the trees. You’ve become quite the bird photographer, Camilla! You’re really putting that SX50 to great use.

    • Thanks Mike! I like the 2nd photo except the dark blue lines in the background, no idea why they’re there. But I love the SX50, any equivalent DSLR lens would be way too heavy for me to carry around, and I would have to use (and carry around) a tripod as well. I’m still learning how to make best use of the SX50, but it’s a fun process. 🙂

    • Thanks a lot, Yvonne! Yes, I was happy to get these shots, especially since I’ve never photographed these birds before. 🙂

  10. I love the one with the bird perched on the top of those leaves – how beautiful!! 😀

  11. Warblers can be difficult — good job Calee! My favorite is the colorful second photo, with a great perch and nice sky for the background.

    • Thanks a lot, Nick! The small birds are difficult to photograph but they’re also the ones I like most so I keep trying. 🙂
