Enjoying the sun.
Wow you got up close and personal with this guy. I like it.
How come he let you get up this close?
I was really not that close, probably about 12 feet (3.65 m) away in a blind, so the image is cropped. One of the advantages to having a 15.1 megapixel camera, . Here is the original the portrait was cropped from.
I also like the original frame, though in that, of course, the "blue on blue"-theme is broken up a bit.
For my "up and personal" garden bird photos I have to wait for the birds to become tame (or shouting at me - or most of all at our cat - in order to defend their nest), otherwise I would never be able to take such bird photos. Like_here
Seen this on the Canon forum. Great Shot!!
Great capture, beautiful colors!!
I really like the cropped shot.
The uncropped would have been a great stock shot had it been upon an old fashioned pasture post like this shot below
Nice shot, that bird had a mouthful. Yeah, to get close I bought a small one man portable blind.
I do happen to have a couple of shots that are similar:
Nice shot! The green thingy is distracting, but I totally love the background!
i also like the original. GREAT colors. good shot.
