Really good work here. That lens is quite a workhorse. I see many wonderful photos generated by the 18~135mm. Great bokeh, and razor sharp where you need it along with great color rendition. Me Likey Thanks.

What took you so long but you finally got the shot you wanted, and a good one at that.

Cosmetics companies steer clear of animal testing these days, but here they would have had a good candidate for some anti wrinkle "Night Cream" testing.

Brilliant rendition of a very colourful animal. Makes a welcome change from flowers, birds and, dare I say - squirrels. (Sorry Rupert)

Cheers

He seems a bit far from home. I use to think they were only found in Arizona so it is interesting to find they are in Oklahoma too. Such colorful animals. TFS.

No colorful chaps in all of Scotland? I find that difficult to believe.

In Oklahoma they're known as mountain boomers.

Well apart from me and and a few thousand others in assorted tartans, that's the only wildlife I can think of that comes with colour.

I saw him only once this year, back around the first of May. I'm afraid some raptor may have found another use for him... The female is still around, though. I guess it pays to blend in with your background!
