A stopover in Anchorage before heading off to Lake Clark NP yielded a few lifers and this beauty. AS my friend and guide pulled over and started scanning i was way behind trying to open up the tripod. In no time a flurry of activity in the nearby trees had me scopng thru the lens. I used my feet to get the right clean BG and a clean shot of the bird. Chimping right away i knew i hit the target!

I love all the colors and how they compliment the bird. The BG, composition, and lighting are all terrific.

Lovely matching colors in this shot. Interesting to see a Redpoll here- we get them in the winter...sometimes. This might look good with a bit of cropping on the left too.

Terrific shot of this tiny little bird. You did well to spot it in those surroundings.

Love how the foliage colors compliment the Redpoll. I am not familiar with them except for in the Winter months in my area so seeing it in foliage is a nice change of pace.
