Lovely bird, Gary. I've only seen a couple of those in my life and they are eye-popping.

Can we trade lives, please? You seem to have so much more time to shoot than I do.

Thanks Gale

We seem to have quite a few but getting a good picture seems to be a little difficult. To get the red and the black in bright sun is near impossible.

OK

Clean Barn, turn out horses, feed dogs, Pay bills, make lunch, take a few pictures and start over.

One of my favorite birds and a nice one at that.

Next time it is sunny and you have a chance to photograph one of these try the "sunny 22" rule. This only works if the bird is front lit with a few exceptions of course.

It's really the sunny 16 rule but for white subjects it can be the 22 rule.

The starting point is your shutter speed matches your ISO @ f/22.

ISO - 100
shutter speed = 100
f/stop = 22

Then just adjust everything to give you the same exposure value.

200@f/16
400@f/11
800@f/8
1600@f/5.6

800@f/8 will give you the same exposure value as 100@f/22. Make sense?

I'll try to remember that because sunny days I just don't take pictures of this bird. I'll give it a try. Normally I shoot at f8 and ISO 400 and anything less than 1/700

Thanks Gary! Guess it's just a matter of time before I do get lucky and see one. SInce I live in the middle of the city and close to very busy streets, I don't get to see many different birds. I bet next time I go to hagerman Refuge, I may see one!

I hope So!!! If not next time you get to Alabama I'll find you one.
