This was taken on my back deck with my camera mounted on a tripod and a remote shutter release in my hand as I sat at my kitchen table. I have these beauties into October and they know where the bounty is every Spring.

Wonderful capture of this little guy, Candace! The males haven't been as available for me to get that beautiful red throat, as you did in this one, with that great POV. Nicely done. <>< #1668093
