This bird showed up in my backyard on 01/12/2014. After feeding it decided to rest on the American Beauty Berry plant. This is when I was able to approach it very slowly and got the image above. This bird is considered a rarity to south Texas, especially during the winter months.

I used a Canon 7d, 100-400 mm lens, natural lighting.
