Absolutely beautiful Andrew. They are tough to get close to and out in the light. Great work as always.

Terrific shots, Andrew. And 3 tough colors to expose properly! Very well done.

I have one spot where I can consistently find these guys but they are hard to get close to. Excellent pair of shots Andrew.

Oh my Andrew, these are beautiful. I see one around here every once in a while, but never within camera range.
