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.

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.
