    Here's another visitor to my Virginia Creeper setup the other day. After this was taken, he was joined by a marauding horde of his 50 best friends, and they completely destroyed the perch.

    Nicely done. I love the set up, the look-back head turn, and best of all, his foot on one of the leaves.

    Another backyard beauty, Bill. Perfect light, exposure, and sharp as a tack. Beautiful iridescence, and I'm with Artie and Ann on how neat the foot on leaf is.

    Bill, well this one worked out very well for ya! Nice job on the set up, good pose with honorable look back, iridescence came through and framed nicely with the perch and the (as before) lovey pop of pink/orange!

    ****, that's about the nicest COGR image I've ever seen. They are such pretty birds but too often overlooked. Bird's size works better with the leaves that the chickadee from the other day. Really, really nice Bill!
