Merry Happy!

Merry Christmas! I don't have any cliche winter-y scenes for today (though it did try to snow in Nashville, where we are currently, last night), so this handsome male Vermilion Flycatcher will have to meet your approval! Saw him in Big Bend last week. Vermilions make me happy :) Hope everyone has a great holiday!! Bird Photography Weekly SOOC Ruby Tuesday

I've seen many bird guides that could greatly benefit having your pictures in them rather what they do have as for photos for birds being described. Well done and have a nice Christmas day.
