I photographed this Prothonotary Warbler with a spider at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma. It flew near my pickup and waited a few seconds before eating the spider.
How I Got The Shot – Prothonotary Warbler With Spider
I parked at the Baker Parking area to photograph a Prothonotary Warbler build a nest in a tree cavity. While I was doing this, it perched on a limb near my pickup with the spider. It was a cloudy day so it was difficult to get good photos.
I was using a Canon EOS 7D Mark II camera with a Canon EF 500 mm f/4L IS USM lens. I had this setup resting on a bean bag draped over the open window of my pickup.
