Thanks Dilan and Rieko! I just pished at this guy since he was in a bush, and he came and perched on the yucca and sat there for a minute before flying off

Thanks! Don't feel too bad, I got really lucky with this guy. Saw plenty before him that wouldn't sit still!

Great shots! We have tons of those here in AZ, but they never stay still enough for good photos like yours!
