To quote Karl on his most recent Loon posting "went back, he was still there" applies to this Lawrence's Warbler as well.  Two days after capturing him the first time, the weather conditions sounded perfect for the next day so I went back and fortunately he was still there in a small spot within a much larger area. After spending so many years looking for this Warbler, it was worth going back a second time and getting many good images of this rarity.

Great angle and eye contact, Warren. Nice of the warbler to pose some more.

Great idea going back to find a rarity. Every day produces different conditions. Great image, by the way.
