I've gotten a scant few warblers to pose for me over the last couple of days, here an adult male American Redstart and a juvenile Palm Warbler.

Excellent shots, Al! The redstart is simply amazing... we had a pair near here this summer, and they're SO twitchy and "energetic". Very well done!

Thank you so much for your comments, Rocky; I appreciate your taking the time. Redstarts are indeed "twitchy" and I think the males are particularly difficult to get a good shot of; they are so black! I think this shot will end up being one of my favorites, however, as I think the contrast in the black plumage is just right to show both richness and detail. Again, thanks.

I think contrast and detail is what attracted me to the Redstart Al, love your pic of this very attractive warbler.

Thanks, Ian! Yes, the blacks can really be tough; the light has to be just right. I appreciate your taking the time to comment.

Thank you, Bret. I appreciate your taking the time to comment. Male redstarts are tough to get a decent shot of because they are so intensely black. I lucked out here with just the right amount of illumination on him for good contrast.
