    If I ever get out west this bird would be high on my priority list. Love the image!

    Thanks all for the praise! I'd wanted to photograph phainopeplas for some time, and each time I attempted to approach one it would fly off, or be in the middle of some thick brush. I lucked into having this guy sit for a couple minutes, and was able to get a few nice images.
     
  8. Very nice, and excellent capture of that pose. The sunlight in the eye really makes it.
