She's certainly well fed, but may well need to feed on those reserves over the next couple of months. Very well captured. Carol

How well she shows up against that neutral b/g tone and the frosted hedge makes for a different 'perch' to the usual.
Fine shot with good detail and a nice catch of light in the eye.

I reckon it's the Blackbird equivalent of wearing a duvet given the look of the weather conditions! She gorgeous with such lovely details.
