By this point in the season I had taken what I thought was every possible portrait of a Northern Parula that I could get. I was proven wrong when this bird dropped in close on this branch and then hung completely upside down to get at some caterpillars that were on the underside of the leaves. The bird didn't find any under these leaves but right before it dropped off and flew to another spot it tilted its head like this which gave me such a curious look. The lighting was really tough with some spotted sunlight coming through but this incredibly fun pose still outweighed the less than stellar light for me.
