Sing for Joy

It had been raining all day today and finally cleared late this afternoon, so we went outside to take some photos near where we were staying in the motorhome.

@nzkites has been doing lots of bird photography recently, so as the saying goes, if you can't beat 'em, join 'em! I also have started to observe and photograph birds a lot more.

I heard birdsong and followed the sound until I spotted this blackbird in the top of a willow tree. The image has been heavily cropped so I was pleased to see how sharp it was.
Very nice capture!

Seems birds love landing on this place. Beautifully composed.

I really like how the twig frames the bird.

You must have an excellent camera to be able to crop and still have the fine focus! fav

Such an interesting image. The bird is sharp and well placed and the unusual shape of the bush/tree it is sitting on provides an intriguing frame. Well spotted.

I really like the 3D bird with the almost flat curl of the branches, as if the one curved about him is a shelter.

Fantastic composition! I love the bird in all that curly wood, so nice!

I like that you've caught the bird in 'action' with it seeming to be reaching out for something or maybe chatting with someone off-scene.

Love the composition and framing of the blackbird.

@casablanca We’re fine thanks, just put the project on hold for the moment, as we’ve been busy travelling around the South Island. Sorry for the delay answering your comment, hope you and yours are all well too.

@chikadnz No worries at all, just checking in on you and letting you know you are thought of. Hope you are having a lovely trip around the South Island. I have to say, it was my favourite part of NZ!

@chikadnz Just noticed it is one year since this last photo posting! Hope you guys are okay and your travelling has been an enjoyable thing for you.

@casablanca thanks for thinking of us! It’s hard to believe it’s been a year since this posting. We are doing ok and hope you are too. We travelled in the South Island for a few months at the beginning of the year, but have been back at work since late June. We’re hopeful of starting up the project again in 2022.

@chikadnz Happy New Year to you both with love from my corner of England.
