yip....tail on yellow background....i MEANT to do that...dumb luck had NOTHING to do with that...LOL!

Its amazing how fearless something so small can be...the ones here will practically land on you. I had one hover within 6 inches of my face for over 20 seconds checking me and the camera out. I stayed still as I could and savored the moment...very cool! :)

That is one FAST capture!! And it's beautiful, too.

Probably from another bird...those things are ferociously protective over their feeders.
