First time to photograph this beautiful orange bird. I'd seen them a couple of times in my life but not since I started taking photos. The previous year I spent several frustrating episodes of following their call, not seeing them in the heavily leafed tree until there was a flash of orange as they flew to another tree with no chance of a shot. Finally this time, one stayed put in a break in the leaves long enough to get a couple of shots. Yippee!
