I finally caught her on what I think is the perfect perch for her. This is my personal favorite nature capture of the year.

Merry Christmas Folks!!

I've been trying for months to get a good shot of one of these things without even a hint of success, so I salute you.

I haven't been here in a while... this is a very fine image! The BG and perch are perfect... the only thing I would not do is lighten the water drops that much, its over the top INHO.

I can see why it would be your favorite - it couldn't be much better. Congratulations - a good catch (for both you and the bird).

Absolutely amazing shot. It would be my favorite too.
I find it interesting that the females have the brown belt of color on their breast and not the males.
