    Great images Mike! Flew and I were talking about this very thing the other day. There's a lot to be said for the usual suspects in our yards. If it weren't for them it would be pretty boring!

  8. Mike, I can never see too many shots of these beautiful backyard birds. And yours are wonderful. You really punched my ticket with background, composition, attitude, color... everything is just wonderful. I can look at your work all day. Keep them coming!

    God bless.
