Not the best shot but man these guys are little balls of motion. I chased this guy around a tree for about 10 minutes. He finally sat still long enough to get a quick focus. These are the smallest birds I have seen I think they are only about 3" long.

I love this photo, zoomn. The dual point-of-view, from downunder and angled, is unique and challenging. Those rufus hints of color surrounding the bird also add a touch of spice. The bird's head is turned away from the camera yet it seems to fit in with the overall look because everything is topsy-turvy here, so it all couples nicely. The bird is sharp where sharp counts as well and the background and foreground are blurred just enough to make the bird what it needs to be, the center of attention.

Love it!

You did a great, no, excellent job of catching one of these little speed demons!!!!
Getting a shot as detailed as this with one of these guys is no small feat!!!!
Most of my shots of these guys are of empty branches or blurred. Congrats!!!!
