Nice colours and composition. It is a very small bird, so well done for getting it so sharp.

You are so lucky to get such prominent crowned! Not an easy shot among such busy branches, but you have captured it very nicely. Excellent color and details as well as sharpness. It's typical beak showing its main food its insects and its pose showing how restless is this species. Good work...
Thanks for sharing,
Regards and have a nice Sunday,
A true "delicatessen", Ron. From the technical point of view you have accomplished a very difficult approach between this hell of twigs vying attention of the lens. From the artistic point of view, you've always known resolving the disposition of the subject (the little bird in this case) in a square format (typical of Tuslaw I -why your nickname is "Tuslaw" -?) And the choice of a strong focus on head and chest of this Kinglet creates a great sense of depth and the impression that we are observing the bird face to face, to no more than a palm away. Awesome feeling of closeness. All congratulations American friend !!!
PS Your tupinambis photo is beautiful, with a focus and a colorful unbelievable, and I criticize you, as it should: but am researching what kind of variety is; because their coloring is very different from that of the lizard I photographed. :)

Amazing! What a beautiful bird, unknown to me.
The orange crown must be a distinctive.

Oh great! You got one of them and in right action!!?!!! Oh I am missing so many good pictures now a days!
This is brilliant, Ron. I had met this tiny, super busy bird once in Tennessee (just a glimpse).. and one in Massachusetts (oh how I spent 90 minutes just for a record shot). I never knew the ID until I checked with Massachusetts Audubon Society and got to know them. Surprisingly, the search ended with a cute gift.. the bird has my name it it! *shy* And look at you! You caught the best out of his beauty! Congratulations, Ron! Someday me too. :( :P
Keep posting. I will try to stop by every now and then. :D
Keep smiling! Take care.
