Yellow-rumped warbler, I never have them here long enough to see the beginning of breeding plumage so this was nice.

Fantastic captures, Paul! I also often look for frames where the predator momentarily loses contact with the prey in my own shots, those are more interesting frames.

Yeah!! He's back. Okay Shalu, this shot is really striking. The detail, and sharpness are excellent. You sure got close to the gull on this shot. Wonderful job.

Thank you Jack, I'm not very good at distances but I took this with 600mm x 2TC on a 1.3 crop body and then the photo was heavily cropped.

Paul...these two shots are simply remarkable. I'm amazed at the sharpness and detail you got, plus this bird looks so alive right here in front of me, as does the catfish. Congratulations on these two captures.

Both the Yellow-rumped warbler, and the pine warbler are superb, beautifully done shots, Bill.
