    Default Warbling Vireo In The Crabapple Blossoms.

    Even the "drab" birds look great in these flowering trees. These flowers only last a couple of weeks, so one has to make it a point to go there before missing out for another year! This Warbling Vireo responded almost immediately to audio and posed exactly where I wanted it too on this branch that was sticking out near the bottom of the tree.

    Loverly image with great composition, for my taste though a little too high key in presentation.

    Hi Dan ... lovely shot and the blossom framed subject with its singing pose is really cool .
    Framing and comp spot on , as are the overall tones and colors ... some might think ( specially lately ) this is overwhelming or too much , or whatever one wants to call it ???? Do not want to go deeper into the weeds .
    Just think it is down to the artist and the viewer to decide which is attractive ... that might differ widely .
    Ok the colors are a bit on the " Barbie side " .... but hey I think you like it that way .

    Super shot Dan

    Bright color fanboy posse has arrived. LET'S GO DANIEL!!! hahaha

    I loved this the moment I saw it on FB. As beautiful as it gets, highlighting a simple subject among a fantasy land of colorful blossoms.

    Wonderful calling pose and I love the gradient of colors behind too, which could get lost among the rest. Is the cyan in the breast true to the field? Only seen a couple here before.

    Only suggestions I could make is taking the blues out of the talons. I'd absolutely love this in my files, great work!

    A stunner. The soft light and the pinks. Dad I suggest losing the single brown stem that intersects the primaries of the folded wing?

    BTW, some sites say that this species has blue-tone legs (that while showing a photo of one with grey legs) :-)
