Outstanding image by all means!!! This is probably one of the most colorful birds we have here in the States, and to be able to capture it in such a (Top Quality) photo like this is simply awesome!!
I always hope to catch a glimpse of one of these little beauties whenever I visit the lower western states, but so far I have had no luck. I do know of one sighting here in Ohio, during the spring migration a few years ago.

This doesn't look like a picture to me, Howard; I feel as if I'm looking at this beautiful bird with my own eyes, man!
Bravo and I'm truly grateful to you for sharing this mind blowing image!

Very nice to see again a picture from you. And as usual of high quality! What a beautifully colored bird. Very well shown in its natural surroundings and with perfect sharpness and "unforced" colors.
Thanks and kind regards
