One from last February. He was so close that at f/4 DOF was too shallow to get all of his tiny body in focus. :)

Red-crested cardinal, from Hawaii

Well, that gives me an idea for a contest.
"Is it real or Photoshopped."
Take parts of different birds and assemble them into a hybrid, then get others to try to guess if it is a real bird species or not.
If you had entered that photo I would have guessed it was put together.

Here's another one. He was a pest every morning at breakfast, on Kauai, wanting us to throw crumbs.
