Yellow Warbler in Purple

A Yellow Warbler surrounded by beautiful yet invasive Purple Loosestrife in Conception Bay South, Newfoundland & Labrador. Another great capture by Brad James Photography In this article, Brad breaks down the experience of capturing this great award-winning Canadian photo.


I noticed this pair of Yellow Warblers breeding in this area earlier in the session and hoped I would get the opportunity to photograph them once the Loosestrife was in full bloom. Sometimes it takes a bit of planning to get the perfect shot.

I finally got my chance near the end of August and I’m truly honoured to have this image grace the cover of Bird Photographer of the Year book for 2022.
