Dinner guest*

.. * We have a family of blackbirds who have their 'home' in our garden , nesting each year , mostly 2 times sometimes 3.

to help them through winter we always provide them with food: bread, apples and fresh water. The table is set close to the window, so I took this photo through the window. Always lovely to watch it from inside and get this 'close'.

Good morning Karin, this is so lovely! I have a resident blackbird as well and he chases away any other male blackbird who tries to take his food! L&F. Best wishes, Rosa.

The composition is well balanced, and the accurate DoF isolates the subject nicely from the surroundings... Good details in the plume, and the special expression is well conveyed!
