I second Sabine's comment. I was just sitting here wondering how you got close enough to get this kind of detail. Really excellent.

Thank you. I had a few bushes in front of me but not totally blocking his view of me.

Thanks Paul. It's a park that has a walking path around it. He was intent on fishing from that wood structure, and only left when I took a direct motion towards his position.

Will, that first one is simply stunning!Such detail would not be possible without such a close view. I've seen them from a distance but could not appreciate their colouring until now. Thanks for this. Dan
