My Target Species (sort of) Tanager

The main purpose of last Sunday's bird outing was to get photographs of a scarlet tanager. I did not see the scarlet tanager, but did find this summer tanager. He was not the most cooperative and I had to keep picking up and moving my rig to find him through gaps in the bushes he was in. Here are a couple of the best I could do. Not sure if I like the straight profile better or the slight head tilt.

Excellent job exposing the reds. I find these birds very difficult to photograph. I think I like the 2nd one best.
