    This guy showed up at our feeder a couple of days ago. I ran and got my camera, mounted the lens & teleconverter put it on the tripod..... :confused:

    By that time I only got a couple of real quick shots before he took off. I'm hoping he comes back sometime soon so I can get a better one of him.

    Wow! Beautiful bird. :thumbup: I don't think we get them here, at least I've not seen one. Blue jays and bluebirds, yes, but not these.

    Nice capture! :D

    Thanks, it was getting late in the day, around 8pm, and I didn't have much light to work with. If I shot any slower and he would start to blurr. I'm watching out for him now. Hopefully he'll show up in nice bright sunlight!

    That's his normal color, I think they are pretty cool.

    I didn't do anything except scan the negative. No Photoshoping to him at all. They are not real common around here so he is a difficult capture. Especially since, so far, he seems to only come late in the day when it's getting dark.
