Haven't posted a shot here in number of months, here's one to maybe start changing that.

We have watched the third generation of a large family of wrens raise their young at various places around our home. One of my favorite birds of all time and can become friendly when they get to know you.

Thanks for the post. Very nice photo.


Life is way too short.. go take some photos.

Great shot of a busy little bird, Brad. It's a Bewick's Wren BTW.
Now that you're back posting shots I can't wait for this years Rough-legs.

Beautiful image Brad. I might be tempted to clone out the upper left OOF branch.

Thanks Stephen. I intentionally left the the two oof twigs in the background. The major one across the frame because I felt it's curve complimented the curve from the bird's tail to the similar curve in the leaf on the left. The one on the right because it extended the angle of the bark the bird is perched on.

I maybe wrong but I often look for complimentary lines and angles in my compositions thinkg they may improve the image.

Thanks to everyone who commented it is appreciated!
