Another image from Florida. These birds are very small and seldom sit still long enough to get into focus. I saw many of them and after many attempts was finally able to get the image I wanted.
Not a setup.

Please click image for uncompressed view, thanks.

Excellent image, nice pose and outstanding details. One of the most difficult birds to shoot.

Just the right amount of head turn - a very cute bird and an excellent perch. All the colors blend well .

Beautiful composition. I love how the greyish bird is separated from the green background. Great job.
