Mornin' All

Out looking for something else the other day and stumbled upon this little chap. The background is not as clean as I would have liked, he is actually sat on the hull of an abandonned boat. Rather inconsiderately he flew off before I could arrange him in a more aesthetically pleasing position.

Thank's for looking. Have a lovely day.

A nice shot and the compsotion is different which makes it attractive - good use of light - perhaps just desaturating and darkening the background slightly might help - overall I like the natural look that you have captured xx
