Beautiful capture. But in Hawaii? Do the birds follow you around so you can get these great shots? Wonderful work as usual.

Bill, thanks very much for your nice comments; we fed the birds so they hung around our condo, coming up to within 6 inches and some were bold enough to come inside before we chased them out.

Excellent capture, Janine! Great detail and I LIKE the perspective that your took this photo... ground level! This is something that I have been thinking about for a long time... take outdoor shots, right at ground level when warranted. You have done this and in my opinion, enhanced an already great shot! Cheers, Glenn.

Everyone's commented on the clarity and crispness here, Janine, but I have to say "me too." I'm thinking this had to be hand held and am amazed at the quality of the shot, given that.
