That chestnut is absolutely beautiful! Look at the size of the eye compared to his body size. And you really got a sharp image of it--so alive.

Thanks Sarah! You're absolutely right about the size of the eye, actually the Chestnut's head looks somewhat disproportionate to the rest of its body, more so that other warbler species or so it seems

Here's a tigher crop...

Of all the warbler species (and I think they're all incredible), this Common Yellow throat is one of my favorites. I'll never know what they were thinking when they through the word "common" into the mix! confused

Love the worm as well as his pretty brown eye. What a perfect stance the yellowthroat has! These are my favorites, as well. Probably because they actually have the good sense to stay here instead of flying off to Canada like the rest. wink I just don't get a good clear shot at them though. I have a female in this position in osier dogwood from last year, but unfortunately a real hot spot on the breast. Your bokeh is really nice--once again!

    • got time to check it out (finally). All it was was the positive side of the battery has 2 cables that run to it. I found the computer one was closest to battery and the starter one was on the outside. This had to be turned to starter cable first and the computer cable second ????.  Alls well after that. I also had to get a longer bolt in it to make a better connection..
    • I'm in, in zone 13
    • Tough game for the Preds.  Seemed like Rinne really let the team down last night.  The was a "Wild" like performance, shut the other team down and let in a couple softies and let the game slip away.  
    • congrats to your dad Borch!
    • That's from the Trailer Park Boys. A hideous beast.
    • Nice work Borch for you and your dad. Congrats . I have been seeing a lot of strutters of the weekend . Those 20 gauges are awesome sure put a hurting on .
    • Another fantastic week of fishing up in the Northwest Angle!

      Two weeks into the Minnesota season an abundance of saugers are congregating around Little Oak, as well as other small islands near Crow Duck, making for an easy shore lunch spot while staying close to home. Jigging at 18-24 has produced the most fish but it isn’t too early to be pulling spinners.
       
      On the Canadian side, walleyes are more dispersed but very plentiful on main lake points with current anywhere from 15-20 ft. of water, holes remain consistent.  Almost any method is producing fish, gold/yellow/orange jigs with a minnow seems to be the most popular.  The northern pike bite remains strong with many thirty plus fish being seen. 

      We hope to see you soon!

    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
