Your garden must be full of "bird perches" that lend themselves to photography, JuliaWink! You have a lovely curved branch and foliage of the rowan, but the bird is clear and sharp against a clean background, and the red berry serves to enhance what is already a fine capture of the blackbird.

Gorgeous shot, that red berry really is the icing on an already very nice image

just what I was thinking Julia, a terrific capture! Unfortunately our feathered friends stripped all of my blueberries this year before I got a chance Sad
