Classic pose for these beautiful birds Ed, not easy to capture as the slightest movement and they are gone, well done.

Much better to capture him like this, instead of on the feeders.

I quite agree Pamela, I always prefer natural shots unless they are humorous wildlife images a la Bunbeam

You did well to capture these birds Ed, as they move around pretty quick! See quite a few close to home, but never managed to get a picture. You sure would need a hide and lots of patience. James Wink
