Very nice pose and placement, Paul. And the orange color on the warbler is striking.

Paul, Especially like that the perch is sized correctly for the small bird and that the background complements the image very well, almost giving the bird a 3d effect.

Blackburnian Warblers, in their breeding plumage, can be tough to photograph as they are usually found very high in evergreen trees except in Spring migration. This is a really good angle to show their most beautiful orange feathers on the throat part of the bird. Well done isolating the bird against a soft background.
