Tom that's gorgeous. One of the most beautiful Cactus Wren photos.
The bird itself and the skeletal remains of the cactus make an excellent combination.
An ambassador poster for your work and those lovely birds.

Hi Richard...

Thank you so much for your very kind and generous comments. They are very much appreciated.

Hi Mark...

This is a special photograph that is so nicely done. I really like the moody lighting you've captured.

this Steller's Jay shot was about the time i shut it down, when the sun gets too brilliant. so, it was the last of the day.

here's the lad growing his male colours
His black neck band is developing and a few more light blue spots are appearing along with the deep blue
Very gloomy day doesn't help
