Goodness. That is a beautiful creature. You've given me an opportunity to see so many beautiful sights I may not have otherwise been able to witness in such a beautiful light. Thank you for sharing your gift with us.

This bird looks like he knows a lot. HOW do you do it, Ale?

Thank you so much. I wish I had a book with just your birds.
