    These guys sure do put out a lot of physical effort for what is really quite a subtle (but pretty) song.

    Canon 7DII + 500mm f/4 II + 1.4TC III, manual exposure, evaluative metering, 1/1000s., f/5.6, ISO 1600, natural light, handheld, small crop to help the composition, eye clean-up. Attracted into range with audio.

    Looks great all around. Love that calling pose and the framing. The green background is right on.

    Daniel, just a beautiful frame for me.

    The b&w are processed really nicely, the texture on the bark and that it's hanging on the detached piece adds interest.

    Calling pose is fantastic and a great comp choice.

    I opened in LR and ran a WB as it felt a touch dark/drab and was able to open up the colors and warm it nicely with eyedropper. May be worth a look.

    TFS, love your Warbler shots.

    I love the singing pose, the techs look spot on to me. My only nit is I wish you had a bit more DOF to get the feet in focus. But I know you were probably close to the limit of were you wanted your ISO and SS

    That is quite the open beak Dan! I like the pose, EXP, and the mossy and lichen bark. Nice frame

    Great control of the blacks and whites and they really pop against the green BG...Lovely pose and the calling pose adds so much...

    Very nice

    A dynamic frame Daniel. Agree with all the positives already given. BG contrasts perfectly with the b&w of the bird. As to the oof feet I'm undecided: would be nice to have them in focus, but my eye is drawn to the head area, so it's not a deal breaker. Cheers.

    There is something so happy and cheery about this image.
    Love the pose and the singing.
    Exposure on the bird is perfect.
    if this was mine, I would desaturate the green in the BG slightly but minor nit.
    This image makes me smile!

    Great pose, BG, comp. Love these active little warblers with their squeaky-hinge song. Gail has a good point about a slight desat of the green.

    Calling pose makes this a very engaging image. Love the clinging pose - as this species is inclined to behave like a nuthatch - and the detail in both whites and blacks is excellent. Gotta love the flat light on these high contrast birds. That's what nice about
    shooting in eastern woodlands; you can get color from the surroundings. Shooting on water most of the time, I really need sun to give my frames color.
