I haven't been active photographing for most of this year and just got my mojo back recently.

Captured this lovely bird deep in a thick bunch of trees.

Thanks Bret,

Very nice, John. It's definitely been 'one of those years' of shooting for me, too.

Thanks Eric. My interest wanes in my hobbies at around 5 to 7 years. I usually end up finding another one or somehow getting refreshed for a while. I just plan on getting around to areas I haven't been to keep me going.
