    Great capture, Jim. I like the pose, kind of a Greek statue kind of thing. Her feathers appear wet: was she in a puddle or birdbath?

    Cheers,

    Very nice little series, Jim. Seeing the second, and being less focused on the bird, I also noticed that the branch (twig!) is so delicate, in keeping with the tiny bird. I imagine they choose that kind of branch because their feet are small: it makes a nice image.

    Cheers,
    Rick
