I'm Just Trying to Blend In

In took this earlier today in the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area near Atlanta Georgia where I'm visiting a longtime friend today before a small 365 meetup tomorrow with Daryl & Junko. My friend pointed out the Cormorant Tree -- apparently there can be hundreds there at a time. Today there were only 8 of them, and this one seemed to be trying to line himself up so he'd blend in with the tree branch.
My God, woman...do you ever stay in one place for longer than a few days? Every time I check back in you are traveling to some different place (though admittedly, I sometimes get rather behind) --fun photo here, really camouflaged!

You did a lovely job blending the textures in this shot. He does look like he is trying to blend with the branches. Pass my "hellos" along to Junko and Darryl! :) Sounds like a great time.
January 18th, 2017  
Such a striking image with that gorgeous palette of color behind the stark branch and lone bird.

Great capture and colors.
January 20th, 2017  
What a balance and I hope the branch is holding up.
January 20th, 2017  
@olivetreeann On my way home already - just a quick visit. It's nice to have the freedom to get to see longtime friends and newer ones, connecting with fellow 365ers is great.
January 20th, 2017  
Terrific shot of the cormorant. Love the tones of the background as well.

So cool! I honestly wouldn't have noticed him if you hadn't pointed it out!

@mcsiegle Cracking up with your comment! I do get around, but really, the last year has been to avoid dealing with our housing situation (not being able to get into our condo because of renters and feeling like the clock had turned back as we stayed with friends or rented another condo). I'm looking forward to settling in this fall, at last.
