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!!! ☺ #6498689
