From someone who is used to seeing chickadees and Blue Jays, this is absolutely awesome. You are one lucky SOB.

Thanks Bynx & JJdog. It's taken me about 10 years to be able to get shots like this. Well worth the wait

Hey Bynx, just think of this as a very large chickidee!!

I can't say it any better than Bynx did.

Good for you. After 10yrs, you certainly deserve it.
