Default Ready-set go!

This guy (Yellow-rumped Warbles a.k.a. Audubon's Warbler) has been around all winter, while still ratty a few days ago, has now just finished his molt into Spring plumage, and is ready to depart for the Northlands any day, so a couple of quick near twilight grab shots through the glass patio slider - the first by available light, the second with flash (on an angle to avoid reflections). Not the best, but time is short - I'll try for better if he hangs around a bit longer.
