Smashing shot Karl. Like that pose, which is so typical when females are around... Shows off the colours to perfection.

Great calling pose and in the right light, the iridescence is quite amazing.

I've never seen a Grackle image quite like this, Karl, so a fine capture, here. Great colours, as well.

The colours are very interesting Karl. I like that he is calling and looks like an action guy.
