Kathleen- We have these that visit us from time to time. I think that red is so neat and cant wait to get a shot at him with my new camera. I can only hope I do it justice the way you have here. Love the proud, noble look you have captured him with. Beautiful colors, such interesting features. Love the textures of the post hes sitting on and that background is so perfect.
Remarkable work my friend.
Have a wonderful day, take care.
