Lovely shot and nicely composed with the lefthand branch creating a balance. Texture of the wood is attractive, as well.

Thanks! I put that branch up last fall hoping.

Almost like a tricked out Mockingbird. Great capture. Hard to get a good eye with a full on back shot but
you coaxed him :)

Backlight is a pain but you pulled it off and a really cool pose frozen in time.

Remind me to NEVER piss you off! You could snap me like a toothpick with the hand not holding the 800!
