    "Oh! They're so cute! Look at his pretty colors! They're so cute!"

    That was the comments from my 9 year old daughter :D

    "Eeeewwwww!!!!"

    And that was from the 6 year old daughter, sorry about that :D

    They are indeed beautiful colors. Number 2 especially.

    So cool to have such neat things in the backyard. All I have is deer.... and bear.... and supposedly a possible mountain lion (though they aren't suppose to be around here any more.)

    Thanks for the comments....and thanks your daughters for me too :thumbup:

    All of the shots were shot in daylight hours... I like a technique that I learned from Joe McNally (Hot shoe diaries).

    I crank up the flash on a SB-800 to +3 and way underexpose the image to achieve this effect.

    Cheers, Joe

    Wow, 2 and 3 look like magazine layout shots. Colors are great. Your lighting technique works very well indeed.
