Beautiful colors. Now you just need to convince him to pose without the branches in between :-).

Very pretty bird! I'm sure you would have preferred he perch somewhere else without branches, but how likely is that?!!? And this one gives me the feeling that I'm spying on a very shy creature. I like it.

Thanks for the comments. These birds are gun shy as they like pear trees etc, and probably can't tell the difference between a .22 and a pentax. Photos taken at Northcliffe in south of West Australia. Other frames not in focus as I had to be quick!
