  12. Beautiful images as always. I really like the background too. That's always that hardest thing to get right, since they can be very busy. The birds really pop out nicely! Thanks for sharing.

  20. Wonderful shots of two birds I may see most days in the winter but always a delight to gaze on even in photos. The house finches nest and make home the ivy growing on the back of the house. Today with snow on the ground and falling from the sky the pinkish purple feathering popped.
