Lovely capture with lovely detail in head and eye. Love the pose - I almost expect him to pull out a revolver from under his wing! Viv

A big thank you to, Kelly, Viv, Maggi, Tony, Alan & cees B. I loved all your comments, especially Viv'sSmile!
Kelly, now you can post yours - I would love to see them. They are an interesting bird. This one would visit everyday to catch insects in the foliage. He would rest on our balcony, but, typically, move on when I fetched my camera. I did manage a few thoughSmileCat

Beautiful capture cat. Lovely pose and nice detail. We had some of these on the Island but I never got a chance to see them.

Thank you, Paul. I have never seen one, here, in Montana. I was so lucky. What a shame you didn't get to see them. Maybe another timeSmileCat

A real beauty Cat. The soft color is important to this lovely bird and you captured that perfectly with a crispness that shows it off wonderfully. Well done.
Be Cool, don't freeze...
