Balancing Act

I walked out into my back yard the other day and I saw something moving out of the corner of my eye.  When I turned to look, I saw this little bird balancing on an agave bloom and munching on the flowers.  I went back in and got my camera thinking he would be gone but, there he was still munching on the blooms and smiling for the camera.

Obviously the bird considers agave blossoms a delicacy! Lucky bird to find a delicious repast and you to find a worthy subject to photograph.

You must have a special way with birds. They take one look at me and flap their wings and are gone! This is a cutie and you managed a very nice composition!
