They are beautiful birds. I saw 2 just merrily flitting around a porch the other day when I went for a walk round my neighbourhood, a lovely sight. And for me being a Brit (now living in VA), part of a totally new look on wildlife from my own country.
I tried to gauge the final picture in my mind, the prime problem was that I was shooting into the sun, but I thought rule breaking was ideal for this shot. I did process slightly in photoshop elements 4, but not enough, I felt, to over compensate for the rule break.
