That is amazing, Sue. Words escape me. This is without a doubt the best "bird and bloom" photo in the world. Well done!!!

Thanks Dave, and Zuzu! It's one of my favorite shots ever, taken in my other garden in 2008. I was doing some research and came across this on DG, somehow missed adding these iochroma shots! I will have to see if I can scrounge up the whole series I took of this little guy, he sat and cocked his head as I spoke to him!
A nice ending to this day after all, birds and blooms and thoughts of the upcoming bloom season always cheer me! Green Grin!

I keep coming back to this to enjoy it. With 6 thumbs it'll already be at the top of the newsletter this weekend, for sure.

Wonderful! I remember that thread, from back in the early days of Cubits.
