Excellent capture with very interesting bokeh! I wish we had more of them around our area, but I think we are too urbanized for them where I live. In 30 years I have seen only one in the area behind my house.

Yeah, they're a deep woods bird. Where I live, when you walk out my back door there's just thousands of acres of woods. I have a pair that's been coming to my feeder on occasion for years.

Very nice catch of a strikingly-coloured bird!
