I spent some time this spring trying to get better images of these guys. I had never really focused on them but always really liked them. Hope you guys enjoy them.

These are all beautiful images, but I would clone out the poop on the fence post! You picked the perfect spots to photograph this beautiful bird.

So THAT is what they look like when properly exposed and sharp... I can almost see the similarity with my shot... :p

All joking aside, those are fantastic shots! I have only seen one around where I live, and my pic wasn't the greatest.

Very nice, Jason; I especially like the second for its artistic qualities.
