Great pose, eye contact and BG that gives a sense of the setting.

One of the best Warbler photos I've seen, Warren, regardless of the specific species being photographed!
I have to agree with the others, regarding the great pose, that he gave to you.

Thank you all for your nice comments. One thing you all mentioned was the unusual pose. The reason for the pose was the fact that there were a couple of mixed flocks of small birds in Spring migration. They had temporarily stopped by a curve in a large stream where insects were hatching and flying so the birds were constantly taking to the wing and flying up and catching them. Fortunately this warbler stopped at a branch where I had seen several different birds land, so I was prepared if another one landed there. Fortunately this warbler did.
Thanks again for your comments.
