    Spotted these above my head eating berries, this time I had my camera.

    They are very quiet and where a little hard to spot in these trees.

    I'm envious., these are one of the prettiest and we don't see them down here very often.

    Bruce,

    Good catch. These have got to be the smoothest looking birdies I've ever seen. I don't know what it is, but every shot I see of these guys makes me think of a wax bird they are so smooth. Maybe that's where they got their name?? 8)

    Thanks for the kind comments.

    The 2nd one and this one I tilted the image 90 degrees to the left to get him vertical because he was horizontal. I noticed in either direction the tree branch seemed to look normal so I liked him in the vertical rather than the horizontal position if that makes sense?! :idea:

    Bruce,

    I think it was a good idea except the bird's position make it look like he is holding on for dear life. 8)

    Nice shots, Bruce! I agree with Frank, orientation makes it look like he's barely hanging on, but I still like the shot the way you did it. Great captures.
