This gorgeous guy was in my backyard today. A first time appearance. I wish i had taken this picture but i was too dumbstruck to move...i did not want to scare him away. The kids and i stood there and watched him until he flew off. I was so distracted watching the feeder hoping that he would come back that i burned Avery's lunch. oops!!!
