They're about the only birds I have, except for some little brown ones!  Thanks for the compliment!

I was sitting on a four foot ladder right next to his feeder.  I usually do not use 'on camera' strobe for these shots, but I was just fooling around seeing if I could get an unusual shot and this guy flew by.  I was shooting 8 frames/sec with the strobe at 1/16th power.  Luck has the most to do with it though.  Generally I get one good(unusual) shot per thousand.
