    Nice! I saw one last year while camping but wasn't quick enough with the camera. I haven't seen another since.

    I love these guys! No wonder your heart was beating - they are hard to find, despite how loud they can be! Gorgeous but elusive.

    The image looks a little flat. I'm guessing you had to do some cropping on this. Maybe some simple brightening/contrast would give it a little punch? I know it would be a shame to lose the details on those feathers! 10% or less?
