Taken at Hyde Hall earlier this year. I was laying in the grass taking crocus images when this Female Blackbird started to hop around the emerging flowers growing in the bulb meadow. I managed to pan with her as she made her way through the grass getting just the one shot before she flew off Grin

What an opportunist shot Mike

A fab background and the mushy foreground, all make it the tops

Isolated to perfection by those lovely bg tones and that super "mushy" fg, Mike. Impeccable detail of this beautiful bird and stunning POV.
