I love the perch and colors here. Not many perches out there that a Hummer could bend:-)

I haven't seen anything short of brilliance from you yet!

Just back from Spain with a few good finds. This one's a Red-necked Nightjar.

QUOTED IMAGE

Amazing find.

Couple of questions:
A) how do you spot them?

B) how do you approach them without flushing them?

Excellent composition and I love the shock of black and blue against the background. Detail is spot on too!

Ha! Norfolk Island pines. We always used them for Christmas trees when I was a kid in Sydney. :)

Good to see them gracing these pages. They deserve a place in any bird forum.
