Oh, my heavens what a beauty. You must have one heck of a zoom lens. Stunning - sweet bird.

Hi Steve,
He looks pretty cold poor guy! I guess they are better over here with 7°C temps and no snow... There are still some around but hard to take pictures of for the moment. Well done it is a very nice and sharp picture!

Ahhhhhh....so sweet. Love that little half-closed eye...

I wish I could do that when my nose gets cold! (-: Beautifully crisp photo Steve!

(Maybe he's a Bruins fan? I kid. No really.)

What an incredible capture! It's amazing that they can stay warm at all but I guess they adapt, evolve. But you notice he's keeping his eyes open... No fool this bird!

What a great shot. Cute little cold guy!

I'll bet the birds are enjoying a respite from the cold weather we've been having. I know I'm liking it!

I think this may be my all time favorite of all of your photos, Steve! Very appealing.
