After I posted the last one, somebody said they wanted to see the bird's belly. This is the best I can do.
I took 169 shots (literally) of this bird the other morning and only got these two worth viewing.

I took about the same amount last year and only got a couple worth showing. They are so fast, just a blur most times. This is lovely and like the red flower too.

Stunning capture, if you had taken 1069 shots just to get that one beauty, it would have been worth the time and effort...
