[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Arizona’s state bird, the Cactus Wren, is a common and conspicuous wren in the Tucson area. It is the largest, noisiest, and feistiest of the wrens found in the United States. It prefers habitat with plenty of cacti and other thorny plants.

The “song” of Cactus Wrens, although easy to recognize once heard, is not easy to describe. It is low in pitch, rough and harsh, monotonous, repetitive and often rapid. Some people say it sounds like a machine gun.

Nice colours and pose, good picure!


Hi Jane

Well done on a very good shot. Nicely composed, good POV, crisp, clear sharp and with very good depth of colour. :-)
