I love this photo, Sharon. I love that there is just blue sky in the background and that the saguaros what's left of the blooms on them. And the little guy showing off for your camera - perfect!

Maybe he thinks that if he "talks" to the cacti it will help them bloom.

Tracy said...

Maybe he sat down on a cactus needle? :-)

Jarart said...

Looks like the cactus is showing off too! Was the bird very loud?

JM said...

I'm amazed! Perfect timing and a great shot indeed!

Magpie said...

Ha Ha, Tracy. Maybe he did indeed!
Cute little guy.

Great shot. Was he coming, going or just airing out his feathers?

glenda said...

This is a fun shot. Makes you wonder if he was coming, going, or just exercising.

I like this photo. great catch. your photos have been super lately!

Sharon said...

To all who have asked, he was just sitting up there flapping his wings and making a lot of noise!

Jacob said...

Neat composition...it makes those cacti look like tall skyscrapers makes the bird look huge. You caught the bird in action, too, which is not always easy!

Randy said...
