11/9/2010: Yellow rumps 3

As I have mentioned, Cape May NJ was awash in Yellow Rumped Warblers when I visited last for the Autumn Weekend. I have already posted two sets. This is the third and last installment of YRWB from the weekend. Always such cheerful little guys. They are rarely as cooperative as they are in Cape May during heavy migration days, so you have to seize the opportunity.

The sun was just up over the dyke at the Morning Flight Tower at Higbee Beach, and this warbler joined the foraging sparrows at the base of the reeds. The light really brings up the yellow!

Canon SD4000IS behind the 15-56x Vario Eyepiece on the ZEISS DiaScope 65FL, providing the field of view of about an 1800mm lens on a full frame DSLR, f5 @ 1/500th @ ISO 125. Programmed auto.

Added Clarity and Vibrance in Lightroom. A touch of Recovery for the white highlights, Blackpoint just nudged right. Sharpen narrow edges preset.

    Great captures, Steve. They are such cute little fellows. Butter-butts aren’t quite as frenetic as kinglets, but close enough that it’s often hard to get a good shot of them. You got several!
