I've been waiting a long time to get a shot of one of these beautifulTownsends. It was raining anddark but I had my flash andI was close.I got one shot off before he was gone and wouldn't you know it, a branch much to big to clone out ruins the shot. Typical! :sad:

There's always next time.

I feel your pain, Kent, as the upper part of this shot is excellent in detail, head position, and saturation. That alone makes the shot well worthwhile for a posting. As for the twigs, well, all I can say is I fully understand your anquish.

It is a keeper Branch in the way and all that. Why is it they always seem to make a branch get in the way.

I've never seen this bird before - we don't have them out here, which is a pity. Beautiful colouration. As for the branch...I feel for you too...:angry:. There's always next time. Cheers, Dan

Thanks Norm, Roger, Bob and Dan for the kind comments! I'm going outtoday in hopes of running across this little guy again. If anything he's easy to spot!

Warblers just don't sit still. I had one or more of these (and others) in my yard during Spring migration and once again this Fall, and never got a shot. I have been bedevilled by an Orrange-crowned Warbler for2 or 3 weeks now - if it winters here, I may have to resort to shooting throung the glass patio door (but I'd have to clean it first)!

Good luck finding it again.

You could always crop this one to a head shot to save it:
