Janine, passerines can be very difficult to photograph as they often are never still, unlike, e.g., raptors. It is hard enough just to get shots of passerines, but to get one next to a beautiful plant and a great backdrop, along with all the other elements you have here is remarkable. This is a stunning photo on its own, but even more so taking these factors into account. #5509285
