You're My True Love - Don't Go! by taffy

You're My True Love - Don't Go!

This common grackle fellow was quite enamored with the female just out of the scene on the branch to his left. He did everything he could to show her he was the right bird for her, but she just looked at him sort of with distain. I actually felt a little sorry for him as I don't think he stood the remotest chance of connecting, despite all his efforts.
Love the composition and focus and story line!

You’ve got a great six word story if there’s a current challenge running.
