As I always say, best results of taking pictures are when we do the thing that we know to do best: wait. After a lot of shoots on this subject finally he gave me a fraction of second on this perch posing for me. This is the best-coloured bird in the whole Chilean territory. Very aflutter among the rush is not easy to photograph completely clear.

Great image! The background compliments the subject!

Wonderful portrait! I agree, these small birds, whether wrens, chickadees, kinglets, tyrants, gnatcatchers, all move about so nearly continuously that any good portraits such as this are a genuine and rare treasure. Thank you!
