Welcome to day 340 of 365 photos…I took this yellow-rumped warbler photo a couple of weeks ago and never posted it. Todays photo turned out terrible so I decided to post this one instead. I took this from my window. It was the first time that I had ever seen one here. So far, it is also the last time I have seen one here. *grin* Hopefully , it will be back with a lot of his friends. I want to see those spring colors. Thanks, Paula, from “Exploring Nature in NC” for helping in the identification.
“Yellow-rumped Warblers are impressive in the sheer numbers with which they flood the continent each fall. Shrubs and trees fill with the streaky brown-and-yellow birds and their distinctive, sharp chips. Though the color palette is subdued all winter, you owe it to yourself to seek these birds out on their spring migration or on their breeding grounds. Spring molt brings a transformation, leaving them a dazzling mix of bright yellow, charcoal gray and black, and bold white“. Source: allaboutbirds.orgCamera: Nikon D7100 – Lens: Nikon 18-300mm
Focal Length: 65mm – Aperture: f/5.3 – Shutter Speed: 1/500 second – ISO: 100Glad that you stopped by my self-project of a photo a day for 365 days. If this is your first time to my site and you wonder what this 365 days of photos is all about, click HERE to read the original post. Settings are added to the photos so that I can remember what I’ve used and can see if any future photos done with other settings turn out better or worse. Remember, this project is all about my learning more about photography.
