Very Nice shot, Tom. I sure haven't seen one of these in many years. I remember seeing Phainopeplas on college field trips in my ornithology class. Holy cow, that was 54 years ago.:oops:

Thanks Mike...Hmm, I do believe we're probably in the same age group. I'm coming up on 75 in a couple of months. My, how time flies.

Great shot! I've yet to take a decent photo of one of these little rascals. They always seem to perch at least a couple of hundred feet from me.

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

Thanks Mike! The background was pretty much a happy accident.
