Feeling like haven't been for a long time. Quite a lot of Palms.

Exquisite captures of the warbler under conditions of superb diffused lighting. What time of day were these shots taken? I'm amazed at how often you encounter a relatively uncommon butterfly. All I see around here for the past couple of months are white Cabbage butterflies or Sulfurs, as well as the occasional Monarch. The woodlot is completely quiet right now ... nothing stirs, not even a cardinal or jay or finch. Even the juvenile flycatcher that I shot the other day is nowhere to be seen. It's depressing.

I took the shots around 10 this morning. Thank you for your comment. That means a lot to me. ;D ;D

Your quite welcome. While your second shot is rather exquisite in its successful depiction of a fall migratory Palm warbler due to the sublime lighting that is to die for, your first shot is stimulating to my imagination ... pure imagination ... of a warbler perched on a icy shelf while being awed by the distant aurora display. It may be the only Palm this far north and it is having the bird equivalent of a transcendental experience. I get all that without ANY pharmaceuticals. You take me on a trip and I don't have to leave the house. Well done.
