LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Thanks Pete – I put image 1 up first b/c I felt it had a wonderful feel to it and would make folks curious to view the rest. I like the second b/c it gives a nice environmental context for the first – also showing the signs of early Spring. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply No 6 is my favorite! LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Thank-you AnnaMeghan! I was actually going to put that one as the first image. I love the way the bird is framed by the branches. I was standing on the edge of the forest by our high school – taking shots of some plants/trees – when this bold junco swooped down onto a branch closeby, then kept hopping from branch to branch – he must have thought I had some seed available. I should have given him a reward. LikeLike Reply Number four! Great set Richard. 👊🏻👍🏻 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Thanks John. I couldn’t decide on which one I preferred – hence the 8 images.

I left a hint of colour in the feathers and background – seems to enhance the composition and give a bit of a vintage feel.

LikeLiked by 1 person Reply My favorite is the first one, both for the clarity in the bird and the catchlight in its eye. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Yes, funny how a little catchlight brings it to life. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Yes, a small detail but one that tends to make a huge difference in bird photography I think.

LikeLiked by 1 person Reply No 5. A really nice action shot. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Thankyou Aspaai – I think he/she was about fly off the branch. I hoped to get a shot “in-flight” but no luck. Btw – Quite an interesting gravatar you’ve chosen for yourself. LikeLike Reply Thanks LikeLike Reply Such a great collection of photos. You take as many photos as I do of one bird.
