Northern Mockingbird

The weather is still rainy and life is far too busy lately, so I'm not likely to have any outside time for new birds this week. Fortunately, I have a backlog of bird photos to choose from. I picked this one because it has a winter feeling, and winter is starting to slip away all too fast. Last week we had a high of 77F, and now the redbud trees and daffodils are starting to bloom. I love spring too, but it feels a bit too soon. Looks like the groundhog was right this year. :)

Thanks!
Yours was beautiful too!
I think it's interesting-an equal split between your perfectly focused/exposed photo and my artistic not so perfect photo. 
Makes me more confident about the freedom to create! Beauty is just in the eyes of the beholders!

It is a really interesting split! I'm interested in trying more artistic approaches, so this is a great place to get ideas about how to experiment, and feedback about what works and what doesn't. I appreciate seeing all your work and learning from you!

Thank you! The branches caught my eye because of their texture and details.

Thanks! This one is a month old now, can't believe I overlooked it for so long. Easily distracted these days!
