Subscriber Steve Wolfe photographed this male Olive Warbler in the Chiricahua Mountains of southeastern Arizona. He posted the shot to our U.S. and Canada Gallery.

Olive Warblers are “usually high up in the pine trees, so that’s why it’s nice to have a 500mm prime as your main birding lens,” Wolfe says. “I got this beauty on the road to Rustler Park, around 9,000 feet in the high Chiricahuas.” He used a Canon 7D and a 500mm lens. See more of his photos on his blog.
