Spectacular photo, Jim, like always. This bird is wonderful. The light, the colors, everything is very, very beautiful. Rich details, dear friend. I loved his eyes : )

Christine, Ali, Greg, Calliope, and Harsha, thank you all for your kind comments. I really do love photographing birds. It's always a challenge to get just enough DOF and to have enough light to be able to use a fast enough shutter speed to capture their quick movements. Christine, the greenish yellow swath of background is a white pine tree giving off a slightly yellow hue in the late afternoon sun.

Berry thief? More like a grateful connoisseur of nature's rich bounty. - You love birds Jim, it's obvious. Maybe you are wearing a halo yourself??? :)

Jim! We've run a search based on this piece of evidence. I can assure you that you already have 'captured' more of this lovely incident! : )

Whoever says that tropical birds look more colourful, is wearing the wrong glasses. That bird looks positively smug with such a rich harvest. What is your background Jim? It looks like a halo. :)
