Week 9 … Theme #27, Movement

Yellow-Throated Warbler.

I discovered this little guy outside my second story landing trying to find a way through the window.  I stood and watched him for some time as he would dart about the branches close to the window and then fly into the window, attempting to peck his way in.  Over and over, he repeated this behavior, returning to various perches to examine the window as if it were a puzzle that he was working out.

I grabbed my camera and captured a number of images through the window.  I must have taken 30 or so photos and as usual, ended up with only a few decent ones.  I loved the ‘movement’ of the above image and the lines in the birds feathers mimicking the palm in the background.  I cleaned up the image and used a Photomorphis texture to give it more punch.  As for the Warbler, he hung around for over an hour attempting to break in!

  1. Mary and I read this together and agree that the first photo is spectacular in the way the foliage lines and feathers are so dynamically complement each other. Great photos. Are you sure he wasn’t attacking his reflection in the window. I have seen other birds to that.
