I am so excited because we don't have these birds in Europe where I grew up. Just splendid - the colour.
Now I have to wait until he gets more familiar and less shy so that I can get him closer to the camera.
These photos were taken with a 200mm lens, while the bird sat about 100 feet (30 m) away in an apple tree.
|Like a Christmas ornament! There he was.|
