    Default Orange-crowned Warbler

    One more warbler from 2017 files. OK, so the perch is too big for the bird, or vice versa. This was taken from a blind at Laguna Seca ranch, and presumably the perch was a setup intended for larger birds, but this little guy found it. He was probably attracted to bits of suet on the branch, some of which is still visible.

    D500, Sigma 150-600C @ 480mm; ISO 2500, 1/400s @ f/7.1 manual.

    I like this, Bill. Overall I find the image slightly dark, so I'd raise the exposure a touch. I agree with the self-critique re: the perch. I love the background, but I find the composition too centered for my taste. It's a tough one to balance and I think you've done as well as you could've in this case. TFS

    Hi Bill, neat little warbler. I agree that the image appears dark. Your critique of the perch is spot on, most likely it was set up for Crested Caracara. Thank you for sharing.

    I like the sleek pose. The flowers in the background are nice as well. I would up the exposure some.

    Bill, neat little bird on a huge perch. I've never seen one in person.

    Flowers are lovely but hard to appreciate them as much as if it were on a smaller branch.

    There seems to be a lot of magenta for me on the whole image on my screen (calibrated Sat).
