He shall cover thee with his feathers... and with his wings...Psalms 91: 4

I used my Tamron 70-300mm lens that I bought in 2011 on the macro 180-300 mode and also manually focused to shoot this image through the window. In May I wrote a Photo essay on migratory birds and this is my favorite action shot from my collection and a re-post of the picture..

The interaction between these two birds happened quickly and totally unexpected. The female Tennessee Warbler with her mouth open is on the left and the bird on the right with uplifted wings, is a male Cape May Warbler. We had a variety of Warblers who hung around for awhile this spring and some of them came back in the fall..

Please View in Light box...Thank you!!!

    Thank you all for your kind words, votes and faves...I am not sure what you mean by "gilded birds", Carl, but I'll take it as a compliment....They are flesh and blood warblers created by God and was lucky to get a shot like this....They picked up a little color from the orange jelly dish which reflected on their feathers.
