I pull up your gallery and this beautiful red bird stands out so boldly. The setting and pose could not be more perfect. Love that long beak and wow, wow, wow on the colors and so perfect details of its features. Exception look Jeff. #11303746

You did a great job capturing this flamboyant bird. It's an especially difficult shot because they are usually SO active. Nice job!
