Oh so cute with that tongue sticking out!! Nice series, Karen!!
I've been looking for a photo that shows the dramatic black edge tail. I found one, not in complete focus, but enough to show how amazing these guys are in flight. I"ll post after work tonight
Great capture Karen!
The sheer number of birds was overwhelming. I was lucky to snag a couple good solo pics as my attention was divided
Love to be there!
Thank you. We saw dozens of these at this garden and one where we were staying. I added an enlargement of this guy - really shows his tongue
