Shot this little guy this morning. Will be heading out for a week in the Rockies starting Monday. [Jasper, Banff and Lake Louise] Hope to get a few great shots to share here. Cheers and see you all in a couple of weeks. JIM

Great shot Jimbo, the colors look fantastic and the focus is spot on. What lens were you using if you don't mind me asking?

That would be my trusty Sigma 70-200. Cheers and thank you for commenting. JIM

That is one sharp bird Jimbo. Have fun on your trip - we hope to get out that way next summer and spend some time on our way to Alaska (God willing).

Thank you Susan. I was going to go to Alaska in July but the fishing trip got canceled. I will make the drive one day in late summer to catch the fall colors in the Yukon. Need a good two to three weeks to complete the trip. Cheers. JIM

Really looking forward to the Rockies Jan. Its a little early but if the weather holds, it should be some beautiful mornings and sunsets. Cheers and always appreciate your kind words. I like shooting birds and hope to do more soon. JIM

Thanks Tom. I love the colors of these Flickers. Tough to get them to stay still though. JIM

No complaints here -- looks great. You must have been quite close with a 200mm lens!
