What do you do when a bird lands too close to focus? Grab the camera phone and get it. Love the little Prothonotary Warblers.

I was driving down the road and heard a loud song out the window. Stopped and could still hear it, but couldn't see it. Looked up and about that time he decides to fly down, coming right at me. At the last minute he swerves upward and in front of the truck, hovered around the windshield for a bit, then landed on may antenna. Now I'm sitting in the truck thinking no one would believe me and it is way too close for my camera to focus so I resorted to my camera phone.

That never would have occurred to me. Good for you!
