A little marsh wren singing his heart out in the amazing Presqu’ile Park marshes in Ontario, Canada … Lynda McDonald and I stood there for quite some time enjoying his widdle song and snapping happily away!!! I was sorely tempted to crop in a bit … but kind of liked the negative space, so did not. To me, the negative space helps emphasize the tininess of the wren and hints at the vastness of this extraordinary area giving a visual sense of the glorious aloneness of the natural world.
