Very striking silhouette
Love how the bird's pose continues along the line of the limb.

Oh Nikki! Another of your wonderful silhouetted images! Superbly done! Wonderful composition, my eyes go directly to the bird and follows him up the limb and right out of the image! The leaves look like a covering for him too! Terrific! Great opposing colors enhance 'his' silhouette and makes it quite 'musical' in nature! No pun intended! Really awesome Nik! Congratulations AGAIN!!! ☺

Oh, this did get a finalist! I didn't see the badge on the C&C thread so I didn't think it made it, and I wondered why. Glad to see it did because I love the BG colors and this wonderful bird silhouette! Nice job Nikki and congrats!
