    A classic bird-on-stick shot Bill. Good light and detail. What is on the bird's legs?

    Thanks Colin. The bird was feeding in a field of tall vegetation with sticky residue on it. I don't know what the plant is. This was at the Joe Overstreet Marina. Maybe Joe or someone else will know.

    Hi Bill, beautiful warbler, love the breeding plumage. Not sure what could be stuck to the leg, I have never saw that before. Thank you for sharing.

    Nice image Bill. I don't know if you can get a cleaner background. Too bad about the debris on the leg.

    Lovely shot Bill! That smooth BG is killer. What a beautiful bird! I don't mind the stuff on the leg. Great work!

    Nice to see this guy in a non cluttered setting. Killer background. I don't mind the perch at all.

    Perfect HA. Good clean BG.
    I think this is over sharpened a bit.
    Do I see some cloning artifact in front of the bird?

    Thank you all. No cloning, Gail, although there was a slightly lighter streak on the left side that I brushed out with a very low opacity green brush. I may be seeing some effect of that. The sharpening looks OK on my screen.
