Ann Lyssenko level-classic 11/17/2012 4:02:08 PM

Leslie, what I love about this image is the subdued color and the great composition. The middle bird is looking to the left, and there are reeds just to the left. This combination of three birds, great subdued color, and wonderful action in the body position of the birds is SUPER! It just makes me smile. It is like watching people on waiting for a bus! So Cool! ANn #10423253
