What a wonderful capture! Sure looks like this little bird has plenty of berries to choose from!
Thank you Dot. The berries are almost gone now, but the birds have made them last for a while this year (about two weeks) as there have only been 7 or 8 redwings and a few blackbirds visiting. Two years ago we had a flock of 40 or 50 Redwings and they stripped the same tree in just over two hours!
Gorgeous capture! Stunning color and light!
Many thanks for your comment Angie. I think the slightly unusual light is the result of using the on camera flash as a ‘fill’ on a very dull and wet day.
Thank you Vic. I’m really pleased that you like it.
Wonderful shot Mike, makes a lovely Christmas card!
