A Little Flash of Red


We were out driving through our local parks yesterday.  Saw 43 species for a nice day of birding.  But what caught our attention in one area was a flash of red across the road in front of the car.  We looked to the left and saw a cute little Vermilion Flycatcher, with a grub, on a small branch about 100 feet away.  I was able to stop the car, and get my Canon SLR with the Tamron 150-600mm lens into position.  These images that follow are heavily cropped to give you a nice closeup of that feisty bird.  If you will click on either photo, you will see some beautiful enlargements.
