Cactus Wren

Cactus Wren
I found this guy hiding out in Tucson, Arizona.

He looks like part of the cactus. Nice shot.

Thanks, I was pleased with how this one came out. It's a tough, high-contrast photo environment, daylight in the desert.

And, yes, he blends right in -- physically. Socially he's an extrovert, though, and a downright ostentatious character. Fairly large bird, too. About as big as your average Jay. A gorgeous, rococo thing.

You put us to shame with your bird captures. I could never do that, no matter how many bushes or cacti I stalked.

Love, love, love this.
