Great close-up, Pam!! Nice detail and composition! I'd think it would be difficult catching a photo of those birds. #893505

Thank you, Sharon!

As long as I stay in my car and make slow movements, they usually stick around.... I think the birds at Bosque del Apache are pretty used to cars as long as they're going slowly. I also have a 10x optical zoom on my camera, which helps a lot!
