It must be wonderful to see that brilliant red flitting through the trees.

A beautiful picture of this lovely bird. Thanks Stanley.
 
Beautiful bird...Beautiful capture Stan, good job buddy. Apparently one of these had been seen around the cabin in Chesapeake Bay, but unfortunately it didn't show for me.
