Great pose, lovely color, and you even caught a glint in this little thief's eye.

Hello kenfowkes - they are only thieves when they take what you don't offer - my best friends have feathers or walk on 4 legs , and I do not regret this fact - they give ( via the lens ) much more than they take - it's always a Merry Christmas at my house , regardless of opposable thumbs or rung on the ladder of evolution !

Gracías Eva - you have a way of putting it all into perspective !

Where is the green hat?? Nice photo!

No green hat ags83642 - had to settle for " Green Eggs and Ham " ! Planted a bunch of sunflowers outside the back door - I set up camera and tripod in the warm garage and take these bird photos thru the doorway . There is also a bird feeder right next to the sunflowers so never a lack of photographic subjects . The birds are so close that I have to use a 36mm macro extension tube or the lense won't focus .

"Salute yer lovely critters; now swing an' let 'em go, "Climb the grape vine 'round 'em — all hands do-ce-do! "You Mavericks, join the round-up - Just skip her waterfall," Huh! It was gettin' happy, The Cowboys' Christmas Ball Happy new year!

Howdy kostas - hope you enjoyed the image and the song !

Where the coyotes come a-howlin' 'round the ranches after dark, And the bluebirds are a-singin' to the lovely "meadow lark"; Where the bighorns are a-grazin' and the lonely plovers call — It was there that I attended "The Cowboys' Christmas Ball
