Black Phoebe playing Marco Polo with his buddy on the other side of a stream in Munds Park, AZ. There were wildflowers on the bank 20 feet behind him, hence the colorful background.

This is a great photo, Mike. The detail in the feathers, bill and eye has a perfect amount of sharpness and clarity in my opinion. I also like the soft pastel background colors.

Beautiful bird and especially the color background. I wonder if this was the natural background out of the camera or were you able to create a different, more colorful one?

Hey Bob, thanks for the compliments!

Note: the EXIF info for my recent images shows "Sony FE 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 GM OSS". I'm actually shooting an FE 200-600mm f/5.6-6.3 G OSS lens. The POTN gear database needs to be updated.

Here's the cactus. It's very old and has a host of problems, but it's still producing flowers and fruit.
