Love the colorful bird contrasted with the deep greens. A very pleasing capture.

Excellent color in detail. I've only seen one of these and I'm not that far south of British Columbia. They are quite skittish.

Nice calling pose. Exposure looks good and the conifers provide a green background that compliments the tanager well.
