This is another Spring adult male Blackburnian Warbler, although a different individual than the one I posted yesterday.  They are two of my favorite images, of many of this warbler so I'm sending both along. This one is more heavily cropped as I was on top of an embankment and he was a bit below eye level but out a ways.

Quite something Warren. Love the use of space, the colours and that rich colour of the Blackburnian Warbler that shines through. Nice one.
Make your life spectacular!

this one is definitely the stronger image of the two, because of him being on the cedar branch makes him stand out more and the out focus bg softness look, excellent.

Both outstanding shots! I like the inclusion of the buds? in this one.

Another beautiful Blackburnian Warbler, and I feel this is the better of the two. Although it is cropped, the detail looks great and the perch and background are better than the last, in my opinion. Well done, Warren!

Two beautiful images of this lovely warbler, Warren, but this is my favourite of the two. Exquisite detail and colours - and an almost 3D effect.

Both of your Blackburnian Warbler photos are so good; but like the others, I might favour this one slightly.
The pose and perch, couldn't be better, Warren!

I have to agree with what most have said-this is slightly better of the two beauties you posted-the lovely greens and hemlock branches really make a nicer setting. And I am green too! I've never been able to get a good shot of this brilliant warbler. Congratulations!

Thank you all for your generous comments and to the Editors for the honor of an EP. Very much appreciated. Warren

Really beautiful this image, I love the sunlight above the leaves that contextualizes the subject with the beautiful colors.
