Berry Breakfast

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
 
Berry Breakfast
Berry Breakfast
2/2/10, animals. Not 5 minutes after I decorated this tree limb with holly, a mockingbird landed to taste the treat I had put out. However, I think he spit it out, as I have not seen any birds eat holly berries, except for maybe robins, and the rest of the berries remained intact.

Great idea composing with the diagonal branch with all of it's contrasting colors supporting the 256 shades of gray bird, Carol. How wonderful that he posed for you with the berry in his mouth as if proving nature's gratitude for your thoughtful consideration.

Terrific composition Carol not to mention dof, and color saturation well done for a wild life shot.

You certainly have these close up critter shots down to a "T". Great job here as well.
