In the previous post the Tennessee Warbler had discovered by looking up there was a caterpillar on the next branch up. In this image he had taken a hop up to the branch where he saw his prey. At the time this was happening I did not see the caterpillar and the sequence took place very quickly. For those trying to see the caterpillar it's actually embedded in a webbing on the lower middle of the frame between the 3 new green growths at the end of the twig (I can only see a hint of webbing).

So interesting a story Warren. I can only see the web too so I guess as the story unfolds, a tad movement by said caterpillar provided the "end game" moment. Great image and looking forward to the story unfolding.
Make your life spectacular!

Nice pose, with a great perch; an interesting story, as well.
