I captured this imaged earlier in Spring, but had little to say about it. Ziggy perched on this same branch repeatedly and gave me multiple opportunities for pictures. He was about 6 feet away and would periodically look at me and then around the yard as he watched for females or intruding males. He sat perfect. Coloring was perfect. Every fiber of every perfect feather just glistened. There were no flaws in any part of this little bird. What more could I say about him. He was Just Perfect!
