This little guy decided to fly down in front me while hiking at nearby wildlife sanctuary. He even decided to do a pose.

I am ready for my close up.

Nice sharp catch. You should've fed him some ants as a reward for posing for you.

Thanks, oh he was eating plenty pecking at the cracks in the cement. He kept hopping around all over the place. I think he felt sorry for me and finally stood still for just a second.

Thank you Heinrich. I am finally starting to get a little more comfortable with that Bigma.
