Clbayley, It was worth the wait.

+1  I find them shy too, except in the fall when they are on the ground after ants.

Not a master and here for the same reason you are plus just sharing.  One thing recommended to me was to look more at composition and my eyes really got opened when I bought the book recommended to me by PBD (Scott), namely: The Photographer's Eye - Freeman.  Well worth every penny if you're looking at more than just a sharp bird sitting in the center of your frame.

I shot this a couple years ago with a T6i using a cheaper Sigma 18-250mm zoom lens. I shot all day that day not realizing I was in Jpeg mode only! But even with a T6i and low cost lens I managed to capture several keeper Jpegs that day.

This one here I only did a couple slight adjustments too and isn't the sharpest knife in the drawer or could win any "Pic of the Year" awards but it's always been one of my favorites for some reason..........
Perfect!

Jack,
Especially for you.
Got one, finally!
We're out walking the dogs at a local national forest pond.  Taken with M5 and 55-200 mm lens.

Also, have a couple near the driveway, but never got a chance to shoot it, flew off before I reach the driveway, but they have made a sizeable dent on the tree by the driveway.

Thanks Click!
Mom and pop were nearby ready to pounce when I want to get nearer.  I respect that.
