You've done a good job here Herman. I bet when he opens his wings he will be quite eye catching.

I love the fact that you have captured this beauty in the midst of a favoured habitat and done so with the focus so accurately concentrated on the bird.

A beautiful tree and with the bird captured amidst all those blooms, and with good selective focussing.
A rather clumsy way of saying what Lynne has already said much more succinctly.
