Golden-winged Warbler up close and personal

This Golden-winged Warbler has been seen at Sheepshead--the Valley Land Fund Lots since yesterday.  I have only seen a few of these very eastern warblers though my first one was a rare vagrant in far southeastern Colorado (Two Buttes black hole migrant trap). 
 This was my best observation of a Golden-winged Warbler as I watched it foraging for about a half hour late this afternoon.  When I stood very still it came to within 2 feet of where I was standing which is how I got the very close up view above. These pics can be seen closer by clicking on each pic as they enlarge nicely. SeEtta
