Great series, you are lucky to have them. And yes, he even looks like the yard boss! The little red heart is super.

All the usual attributes that are in your shots Bret, but the color is also amazing. Shots are truly beautiful. Can't beat that natural light. Wish mine would perch more-other than 30' up in a tree. Well done, Buddy!
