I did not think a bird could look so apprehensive, but this one, clutching its withered branch, does. I find this image very moving. Your title is perfect.

Thank you Tery - the majority of my pictures this fall and winter have been birds or cats - the cats scare the birds , so I take pictures of the cats !

Greatly appreciated Eva - every now and then my camera manages to take a decent image .

I was happy with the results on this one kenfowkes - the blue color in the background is actually a Colorado Blue Spruce tree about 100 feet away ! The title helps define the mood of the image for the viewer ( assuming the viewer understands English ) .

So beautiful bird photo with sharp details, bright eye... and yes, the background goes well with the nice yellow color of this little bird :-)

Like and favourite.

Friendly greetings,
