Another image from my recent trip to Costa Rica - a female Red-legged Honeycreeper taken at a back-yard garden set-up.  This shot was taken on "Super-Bowl Sunday" - while not really a sports fan myself, the guy sitting beside me when this shot was taken was pretty excited about the upcoming game - his image of this honeycreeper's mate is here.

The perch is so pretty and that BG yummy.It really matches the bird!
I think this would look great as a vertical.
IQ is great and the fillflash excellent and not noticeable at all,
