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!

Congrats on getting the chestnut sided warbler, the worm in the mouth is very nice. The common yellowthroat is a sweet image....sweet light, sweet pose, sweet perch(s), sweet!!!

    • You didn't even understand the question Junior. Do we need to get you a translator? 
    •   And then what? There's a saying that goes, "Be careful what you wish for. You just might get it."   You have a country of 300 some million individuals and a good number of that all have different ideas how to so call fix this. That's why we are set up as a representative republic and not a democracy.   You seem to be assuming most people will see things your way

    • Look my very own internet stalker making memes about me, such a proud day.

    • I guess the question is when are we going to get pizzed off enough to do something about it? Guess we aren't there yet.
    •   Hi guys ... Everyone was very helpful last year with what line to use ect...   As I was a fairly new Bass fisherman.  Had a great last open water season as did great with Texas rigs with variety of Senko's.  Also started throwing frogs with 50# power pro with 7'6" med Heavy rod ... wow is that fun!!   What brand is every throwing or like?   I'm going to try the Bobby's Perfect Frog this year  by Snag Proof.  I threw the Booya's this last year and that is a rush.  Can't wait for some basin times!!
    •   Yep, had to fix a few of those switches and tell the wife and kids to let the motor stop before pounding it in reverse!!
    • Kind of crude image but here is what I'm looking at.
    • Access is in the middle but I'm not overly concerned with that.  I can seal it up and cut a new one.  I'm thinking about slide channels mounted on the wall with a steel or aluminum frame mounted to the channels that can slide up and down with a electric winch routed through a couple pulleys. 
    •   You and Bearsheet.................blame everyone but yourselves.  All you those grueling hours you 2 spent in Sillytown advocating for Gary "Hillary is great" Johnson.   #victim #noonegetsitbutyou
    • How close is the access hole to the wall? I have a friend that built a large loft in his shed and utilized cammed pulleys and weights to allow him to hinge the stairway from the loft. Basically, with the cammed pulley, it stays down when he pulls it down and stays up when he puts it up... all with little to no effort.
