Brandon, sweet pose, BG and attractive perch - the red on the leaves add a nice splash of color.  You did well at Cal-brillo :)

Brandon, Very nice. Curious how a vertical crop would have looked to remove some of the open space to the left?

fNice and sharp, and I always like when they're perched on the native plants.  Next time you come here, first visit the SDbirds yahoo group to see what people are finding around town.
