I finally convinced one of these irridescent critters to pose for me this morning.  I wish I had better light and I may get an opportunity later in the day as they are nesting nearby.

What a little beauty and such lovely complementary colours. If you get the opportunities, keep them coming!

A handsome back pose and head turn on a lovely background. I like the way you handled the backlight – beautiful.

Moby, Nice image with everything going for it. Agree about a bit more light. Maybe some fill flash next time?
