I find them quite difficult to get close to on camera and felt lucky when I was able to get this close to this little fellow.

Hello Steve,
Beautiful picture of this Red Bishop in its breeding plumage. Perfect pose and BG. Catching light on its eye made it more attractive. Well framed.
Thanks for sharing 😊,
Regards,
Srikumar
