The pictures of these Prothonotary Warblers were taken at the New York Botanical Gardens and Prospect Park. These pictures of the Prothonotary Warblers were taken with the the CANON EOS7D and the CANON 100-400mm lens and the CANON 580EXII flash.
This Warbler species showed up at both the New York Botanical Gardens and Prospect Park this weekend. I was able to capture the Prothonotary Warbler at the New York Botanical Gardens at the larger of the Twin Lakes. The Prothonotary Warbler in Prospect Park was on the Peninsula. It is interesting to note that at both locations there was a Yellow Warbler present.
Prothonotary is right, nice outfit !
Fascinating that a flash can be useful at the sort of distance these were shot from …
I set the flash at very low. When shooting small songbirds such as these, they are most likely in shady, dark, hidden places that need light.
