Clarity of detailing, the contrast between the sunny red hue of the Summer Tanager and the background and the catchlight in the eye all work hand in hand to create a striking image of the bird.

I imagine the sunset light is enhancing the color of the tanger.
Incredible shot!

The quality of the late sun really enhances this lovely little bird's colors, and the details of the feathers are perfect, as usual.

You always grab all the GUSTO there is to get in your pics. This is one of the best so far but I know you will somehow find a way to top this one as well. The perfect saturation with the infinite details of the hairlike feathers flowing with the gentle breeze on his wing...OUTSTANDING!
