    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.
