Emily Murphy Park, Edmonton, AB, Canada
August 21, 2011
So far I've seen quite a few warblers at Emily Murphy Park and Kinsmen area during my off work hours, but I have not photographed them successfully. While the 400/5.6L is a great bird-in-flight (BIF) lens, I find it fairly difficult to shoot songbirds in the dense wood areas with that lens because of the lack of stabilization and far minimum focus distance. I'm just not used to the lens yet. These Vireo shots are probably better than most of my other songbird shots I've been taking for the past weeks. I will post the other warbler shots soon.
