Shot this last week about one half hour before sunset. The light was perfect, and gave the bird a nice warm glow. One of my favorite shots I've been able to catch of these beautiful birds......cheers........Don

Thanks everyone. Yes, the light was just right. I was pretty close to these birds-maybe 15 feet. They were taken at the sanctuary where they feed them, and he was probably waiting for a free meal. My usual haunt I go to wouldn't be so accessible. Much shyer there......cheers.........Don
