stopped at a rest stop just south of the Idaho-Utah border this morning, and as i was stretching my legs, i saw these little fellas flitting about. never one to resist a bird i haven't photographed before, i got the 40D and 100-400L out of the trunk and went hunting amongst the scrub junipers that give these birds their name...

yeah, i'm doing a tour of southern Utah. got to Bryce Canyon today, it was cloudy, though the sun did peek through a couple of times. fortunately, i'll be here for 2 more days, so today was just a "scouting" trip. then i'll be visiting Antelope Canyon, then Monument Valley, and lastly the Arches and Canyonlands.... something of a whirlwind tour, but i'll get all the high points, at least... :G

Well framed and timely with the capture. Very natural and real wildlife capture here. Awesome.

A bit of suggestion. I don't know why but in someof your shots, the color turned out to be a bit blue and greyish on my LCD monitor. I would expect the presence of a bit of a warm tone to make the shots less cold. Probably, the open sky has been one of the reasons.
