Vermilion Flycatcher

These pictures were taken on February 7th, 2009 at Estero Lana Grande State Park, Tx. An interesting thing about their mating habits is that when the male wants to copulate, it will bring the female a showy butterfly or some other showy bug. I guess that's similar to a man wining and dining a lady in hopes of getting lucky later that night.

Of all the birds to *not* need to bribe his way into her affections with a shiny bauble, bangle, or beetle?! Then again, even Hugh Jackman probably went to Tiffany's for an engagement ring, though a simple cigar band would suffice! : )
