Thank you ever so much Brian... and Christine... so pleased you like this one... Vicki helped me work on some of the detail work... I just marvel at these tiny little creatures every year... so surprised to find I caught one in focus and enough sun to show the wonderful colors God gave him.

Wow Sherrybear!!! Awesome EP!! Love this little beauty! Great that God created him and you caught him in crisp detail/colour/contrast/ and the big thing I see and love is his Catchlight!!! Wonderful!
Did you use your bird 'peek-throu, man made thingy' to photograph him?

Thanks Christine... this guy was so bold he would come within feet of us just sitting out in the open on the back porch... the reason I named him bold. He would even tell you off if you were too close.
