Instant FAV for me Terry! This looks more like a painting than a photo. Really beautiful and I LOVE the birds in the cloudy sky there. The finishing touch to this Oriental type of image. Lovely.

(..I live here and have only seen a handfull of these guys.)

I saw one of these here in Oklahoma last fall, but I couldn't get close enough for a shot. I hadn't seen one since I was a kid in Iowa. A fave for me, too.

Oh my gosh, Terry! You are really getting to be quite an artist!! This could be in an Auduban book! Marvelous capture and composition with incredible detail and clarity and gorgeous effects! The colors are so pure and crisp and I love the other birds flying above. A favorite that I bet we'll see again, my friend!
