On my second visit to this location on a cloudy day, i heard the song and headed in that direction to the edge of a swamp! Well i was greeted by an army of mosquitoes despite the repellant. i was prepared for that and quickly added another round of spraying ( the netted cap was still in transit). It was a big relief - literally called once and waited  - he was right in front of me a few yards away. I let him settle down first and then we chatted for about 2 hours before i realized i was down on my knees with the swamp water all around! This was my best warbler encounter this season. 
D6 w/600mm f/4 on RRS monopod. & Mosquito repellant.

All your time and effort, paid off in this excellent image of a very special Warbler species, Ramesh. A great head-on pose, plus a nice "moody",
background, as well.
