I went to Lunt Meadows NR again and managed to bag this gorgeous bird.

you nailed the shot and good pose with the head up, one common from me when setting a perch try not to cut it start because it shows in the image.

Thanks for your comment, Peter. Unfortunately, I had nothing to do with the perch. These were erected by volunteers that help run the reserve.

Wow, what a sweet shot. Terrific pose with the head and bill angled up, and a very complementary background for this colorful bird.
