Beauty of a shot, well done spotting this and getting the shot! I have them around my place every summer but they are very tough to get a bead on. tfs!
 
She certainly posed beautifully for you, Bob. A lovely portrait.
 
You are a great photographer, Robert. How you got that through the branches looks so sharp is amazing. Oh, and I have never seen this bird before and I live just an hour and a half from there.
