The fact that you achieved a capture of this elusive bird with a full side view of the feathers and color is something that you should cherish because it ain't often that I've seen this bird in full side profile like this. I've chased this bird all over the country and it's like a ghost, my shots usually picking up a slight head shot or even worse. :roll:
