[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

This is a female of the Pyrrhuloxia family.
She was alittle shy, but after waiting most of the morning she finally came in and I was able to get a shot.

I thought the light was alittle harsh on her back but I wanted to post her anyway to give an idea of the females beauty in this family of birds.

Have a great day!

Hello Tabatha,
Excellent close capture of this female in a very nice pose on the wood. I really like the colours of bird and background and details are very sharp too. A brilliant composition!
