This is another bird I've had a lot of trouble shooting. They just don't like to sit very long or in the open it seems. These are full crops. I had to shoot hiding behind a tree through an opening, otherwise, I'm sure it would have left. Shot info - Av 1/400, ISO 1250 @ f/5.6..cheers...Don

What's your secret, man? In my experience, these guys are a pain in the @$$ to shoot because they're so active. I've never had them sit still for me for more than 3 seconds.

My secret? Hmmm, send me $20 in a plain brown envelope and I will reveal all.:G

Seriously, I know what you mean. They are a pain the the @$$ to shoot. I've got a lot of blurred shots of these little buggers, so it was a treat to finally get a half decent shot of one....cheers...Don

You are darn right. Count one, two and three and if you can have it, you miss it. And here, Thekman, you have so many of it!

Greatresults Don and kudos for your patience. I have a few around here that are experts at getting behind branches / shrubswhen I'm trying to track them. No luck so far. Yours are very good. Cheers, Dan
