These guys are tree trunk specialists and they like Midges by the looks of it.

Great close up capture! Nice to get such a good look at the tongue and the insect!

great shot Karl. I think you could try to brighten the bird a bit.

Really cool capture Karl - this could almost be a Macro. The 500 is tack sharp.

Nice! Hard to get a shot of these hyper-twitchy guys, and you caught him with his catch! I agree with Jan that you could pull up the shadows a tidge, but this is great as is.
Good light,
Craig

A handsome warbler, Karl. The midge on the tongue takes it up a level. Great shot.

Thanks Jan, thank you all. I lightened it up and also got rid off most of the blue cast.
