It is too easy to make a bridge from the previous post to this one in the lines of "It's a hoot" - so I won't even bother. This is one of the best bird photographs I have seen for a long time. Razor sharp with exemplary depth of field, marvellous colours, and I love how the curve of the bird's wing comes back in the shape in the background. It was taken by fellow Flickrite Erik K Veland.
