This little guy was one of the prettiest birds I have ever seen. The colors in early spring were just glowing. I found him flying around the famous Mormon Row in Grand Teton National Park in late May.

Hope you enjoy

You are absolutely right, Jason; they are gorgeous birds. I still remember the first one I saw out west 42 years ago! I got to photograph one in Duluth, MN, a couple falls ago; they are rare regulars there and I happened to be there at the right time. Good for you on this great photo.
