Taken in Michigan's Eastern Upper Peninsula (EUP).  Spruce budworm is prevalent in the EUP, fueling not only the abundant 2 breeding Spruce budworm specialists (Cape May and Tennessee), but Blackburnians as well.  Many other warbler species are taking advantage of the bounty.

Interesting narrative, and excellent image of this handsome warbler with its budworm. Excellent framing and color as well.
