Thank you dorian! Pretty much any Warbler is a big photography challenge since they can't seem to sit still for more than a few seconds Unfortunately, out here in western Kansas we are removed from the big Warbler migration corridor farther east. -Mike

A nice set Mike. Well done on capturing the BS in flight, (and you didn't have to go to D.C. to get the shot) ~ Ron

A nice variety of birds Mike. I too like the Grackle the best of the set. Have you tried that as a vertical comp? I think that simplifies the shot and strengthens both the subject and the flowers.

Interesting suggestion, Tim. I never really even considered a vertical.. I'll post one in a reply and see what you think.. -Mike

Here is a vertical comp of the Grackle as suggested by Tim. I think I do like this comp better (it's also a slightly tighter crop).. what about others? -Mike




Common Grackle as a vertical comp.

Very nice set. 2 and 3 are my favorites.
I do like the tighter crop on 3. However seeng more of the environment in the original gives it a feeling of him in his domain, which I like

Hi Birdie! Thanks for the comments and picks. I agree with your last statement, which was the reason I went with that looser crop to begin with. I believe both compositions have their place! -Mike
