I hadn't notice the Fly hovering close to the Sedge Warbler's head until I started to process the image. I've used a little selective sharpening to help highlight the insect. The Warbler was still busy feeding fledglings when most of the Reserve's other young birds became self-sufficient several weeks back.
What about the Goat, you ask... the Warbler is perched in a Goat Willow tree at my local Nature Reserve.

Thank you for your interest in my previous photograph, "Harrier Flight", which seems yonks ago.
