This captures a yellow-rumped warbler in mid-flight, spotted on a cold February morning. I used a high shutter speed of 1/2500 to capture the motion and a relatively shallow depth of field of 7.1 in order to have a soft background and thus pull focus to the subject. To make up for the low light I used an ISO of 2000.
